The BA Early Learning is an intensive work-based higher education qualification for experienced early year's practitioners who have completed a Foundation Degree in Children's Care Learning and Development or equivalent undergraduate qualification. Students must engage in 10 hours per week of work-based learning either with their current employer, or on a voluntary basis in a registered early years setting. Students are required to attend the university for one morning each week.
