Course summary

Introduction

Enhance your teaching career by studying a range of early years approaches and frameworks, including the Early Years Foundation Stage, on this flexible, practice-focused, online postgraduate course for those working in international contexts in any location.

Why study international early years education?

With a growing interest in international education, many early years educators are now keen to learn more about different best practice teaching approaches used internationally, and how to apply them in their own practice.

Teachers with an international qualification are increasingly sought after to teach and lead education provision in kindergartens and schools around the world.

Why UWE Bristol?

This one-year postgraduate iPGCE from UWE Bristol is for early years teachers, or aspiring teachers, in international kindergartens, or schools with an international focus.

Supporting you to provide the best education for young learners, we will share different theories, models and curricula including the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

You will be supported to try out new ways of working, implement different strategies, and evaluate the impact of your teaching on learners' needs in your own setting.

Delivered as an online course, you will study at a distance, supported by UWE tutors, alongside your work.

Careers / Further study

Studying this course will help to transform the way you teach, with access to new ideas and approaches you can feed into your practice.

You can position yourself as an internationally specialised early years teacher, who is knowledgeable about the Early Years Foundation Stage, with the potential to progress in education management and leadership.

Taking what you have learnt into your school will also add value to the education offer they are able to provide to children and families.
