Course summary

This course has been mapped against the DfE Early Childhood Subject Benchmark Statement (Quality Assurance Agency, 2019), which means that our graduates meet all requirements identified in the Department for Education’s List of Approved Qualifications and can be counted in the staff:child ratios of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). What you learn during your early years (0-7) lays the foundation for all future development. Discovering the holistic nature and complexities of children’s learning and development from birth to seven years, this degree enables you to become a highly effective early years practitioner. You will engage with research at the forefront of current early years policy and practice, trace the most important developments that have shaped the contemporary early years landscape, and gain real experience in a diverse selection of work-based settings. This innovative programme encourages creative thinking as you contribute to the content of specific modules, co-producing and co-delivering your chosen theme or topic alongside the teaching team. The personal and transferable skills and professional attributes you acquire will make you stand out to prospective employers.
