Overview As an early years professional you can make a significant difference to children's lives, working with them at this time of key developmental milestones. As work based practice is a key part of this course you have the potential to earn whilst you learn. You will study with likeminded people across a range of other related professional roles based in your own community. This University of Worcester award is delivered by the partner institution The Learning Institute. Delivery venues range across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, London and Somerset, (though not on the University of Worcester campus). The running of the degree and of individual groups will be subject to minimum numbers. The partnership between the University of Worcester and the Learning Institute is well established and has been recently reviewed, resulting in the latest suite of new awards on offer. Key features
