Course summary

What makes the MA Education (Early Childhood) at Worcester special?

This course explores the principles of pedagogy within the particular context of Early Years provision. Starting by considering how the concept of childhood (in the UK) has been developed, it unpacks the values that we hold as early years educators and how these impact upon the choices that we make in our work with children.

The modules consider how we, as individuals, work in partnership with families and a wide range of professionals to produce the best outcomes of the child. The modules also consider how practice is influenced by policy. All learning is underpinned by principles of leading practice and how this can be done both effectively and ethically.

Key features

  • This course is designed for those working, or aspiring to work, within Early Years who want to develop and improve their understanding of professional practice in ways which will have a real impact on quality in the workplace. With a focus on the interrelationship between theory with practice, the curriculum will develop your understanding of yourself as a leader and ‘change agent’ for improvement in the Early Years.
  • The course is suitable for Early Childhood graduates, but also those with alternative qualifications who wish to move into a lead practitioner role in Early Childhood.
  • Learning interactions are designed to deepen critical reflection in and on child development and education in order to support personal and professional development
  • The modules enable the development of the necessary professional skills and knowledge to deal with complex issues reflectively, systematically and creatively.
