This programme is for those wishing to become graduate practitioners in the early childhood sector. It focuses on young children’s education, development and care from conception to the age of 7 years and students will have the opportunity to become self-aware, reflective graduates able to operate in multi-professional contexts. The programme content draws on international research and practice, including global perspectives of children, different Early Childhood curricula and established as well as emerging theory.
Year 1 modules focus on personal and professional development as well as on theory. In Year 2, theory is linked to practice through work-related learning and a placement (or in your own work place). The final year includes a research project and you can specialise in a particular area of interest based on a choice of different modules.
