City of Liverpool College University Centre has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The Foundation Degree in Early Years Practice is a full time qualification which provides students with the specialist knowledge and skills required within the Early Years sector. The degree programme is awarded by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). This level 4/5 qualification has been developed in collaboration with Early Years' employers, LJMU and other partner colleges. Work-based learning is a key part of a student's learning. Students will use their workplace, including a chosen mentor and everyday duties, as a key learning resource throughout the programme. Successful completion of the foundation degree may lead to increased promotion opportunities within the Early Years workforce and may also lead to the ability to work at a level recognised by employers as Senior Practitioner. Subject to the availability of places within the university, achievement of the foundation degree also allows progression to the articulated route of BA (Hons) Supporting, Learning and Development at LJMU, or BA (Hons) Top-Up Early Years Childhood Studies at The City of Liverpool College. The foundation degree may also be used as a bridge towards gaining Early Years teacher status working with children from birth to five. Students wanting to progress on to the Early Years Teacher status will be required to have as minimum GCSEs at grade C/4 in English Language, maths and science.
