Our Early Childhood Studies degree* will give you the knowledge and skills that you need to work in a range of roles in the early years sector, including early years settings, primary schools, family support, social work, charities and healthcare settings:
- your degree will be recognised by the Department for Education, making you more attractive to employers as you will be counted in adult-to-child ratios.
- you will be well prepared for further graduate study (essential if you wish to pursue a career in teaching).
- you will learn through interactive lectures and seminars, as well as a placement in which you will gain hands-on experience.
- we encourage you to further develop your experience of working with children through part-time or voluntary work, and our excellent Student Support services are here to help you secure these opportunities.
- a focus on understanding children’s language development and supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is a unique feature of our degree.
- another unique aspect of the degree is our focus on nutrition, health and wellbeing in the context of children and their environment, bringing attention to sustainability in the natural world. This specialist knowledge will stand you in good stead with employers.
- you will also learn how to support young children’s learning and development, understand early childhood policy and what this means for your practice, and undertake a research project on a topic of your choice.
