Course summary

This certificate explores 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 course 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. It also considers how our practice is influenced by policy. All learning is underpinned by principles of leading practice and how this can be done most effectively and ethically.

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.

Key Features

  • This 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. In such cases a commitment to understanding the unique approach of early childhood pedagogy is necessary.
  • Learning interactions are designed to deepen critical reflection in and on child development and education in order to support your personal and professional development
  • A chance to develop the necessary professional skills and knowledge to deal with complex issues reflectively, systematically and creatively
  • An opportunity to question and reflect, building a sound base of self-knowledge and critical awareness
