Course summary

COURSE CONTENT

Our course combines theoretical study with practical work, to help you explore how children learn and develop in the early stages of their lives. You will enhance your skills in reflection, independent thinking and critical analysis on your journey to becoming a more confident and skilled Early Years practitioner. This course provides the opportunity to progress to the BA (Hons) Early Childhood ‘Top-up’ and is an excellent pathway to enable busy practitioners to gain a degree.

On successful completion, students can continue their studies to a full degree by taking the BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies Level 6 Top-up programme.

Other careers include:

  • A range of work with Early Years (0 to 8 years) management and policy-making
  • Nursery day-care manager
