Course summary

Overview

Our PGCert Education - Early Childhood is ideal for early years professionals and managers.

We designed this course in conjunction with Oxfordshire Local Authority. It provides practitioners with an opportunity to update themselves on the latest research on:

  • child development
  • early years policy
  • early years practice.

This course is a forum for sharing experience and developing your knowledge of:

  • child development
  • the early years curriculum
  • the particular challenges of leadership in an early years context.

We work in close partnership with schools, nurseries, children's centres and other early years settings across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Assessment

Each module has an assignment of approximately 4,000 words.

An example of an indicative assessment is a report on an observational study of children working on a particular activity / experience, focusing on a selected child-development theme.

Career prospects

This course is designed to support you in applying for roles in early years settings and can also be used as credit to build towards a full MA Childhood and Youth Studies or Education. Completion of the course shows a commitment to professional development in the early years sector and can lead to improved promotion prospects.
