Course summary

The Childhood Studies Foundation Degree gives you the opportunity to integrate study and setting-based practices, to help enhance your knowledge, and further your academic and professional learning. Flexible in its format and led by specialist academics and experienced childhood practitioners, this course enables you to work and study at the same time. If you are working on a paid or voluntary basis with children and young people in a setting such as a school, nursery, youth group or library service, or working in childcare or foster care, this course is a great option. During the foundation degree, you'll reflect on a range of issues that affect the development of children and young people. You’ll develop your academic study skills and cement your understanding of areas such as human growth and language development. Through inquiry, debate, reflection, and a purposeful integration of literature and current evidence related to child development and special educational needs and disabilities, you’ll make meaningful connections to develop your practice and impact. You'll examine child development from a range of perspectives exploring psychology, sociology, policy and the history of education. The practical nature of this course means you'll be able to apply newly acquired knowledge directly to your work, as an evidence-informed professional.
