Course summary

Do you want the opportunity to further your studies, but are working or volunteering and don’t want to have to give that up? With the opportunity to study for a Foundation Degree in the field of early childhood, now might be the perfect time to do just that. Our Foundation Degree courses are designed to be studied without your having to leave work – in fact, they work alongside your career with young children. Here at BGU we value the knowledge and experience you have gained so far in your career and want to help you expand on this to enhance the support provided for young children. This work focused degree is a combination of practice-based learning and campus based sessions which run once a week so that you are able to continue in employment throughout the duration of the course.Here at BGU, we value the knowledge and experience you have gained so far in your career and want to help you expand on this to enhance the support provided for young children. This work-focused degree is a combination of practice-based learning and campus-based taught sessions which run once a week so that you are able to continue in employment or volunteering throughout the duration of the course.Over the two year programme, you will bring your experience of working with young children to the heart of your studies. In your first year, you’ll examine principles of learning as an introduction to higher education and investigate the complex relationship between practice and meeting children’s needs. You will explore your role within the early year's sector to support your professional formation, and study modules covering children’s development and social interactions, designed to support your practical knowledge. During the second year, you will study modules covering inclusion, equality and diversity, the role of curriculum in early years services, and the rights of young children, as you continue your development. Finally, you’ll undertake a small-scale research project as part of your second-year modules.
