COURSE INFORMATION

It provides the opportunity for practical, real-life work experience through an extended work placement within an early years setting.

You will be expected to work independently both in and out of college, reflect on and critically evaluate your practice and take responsibility for your learning. Assessments include essay, research tasks, SVQ Observations, and a Graded Unit which is an independent project that requires you to work autonomously to examine an area of childhood practice.

There is a minimum mandatory 60 days’ work placement in an early years and in primary School setting.
