Early Years Education BA (Hons)


Level 6

Develop your theoretical knowledge and practical skills to support your career in the early years education and care sector.

With successive governments attempting to improve standards in the early years sector, a degree is increasingly being seen as desirable by employers in childhood settings, especially for those who aspire to managerial roles.

This programme has been developed to promote best practice through the teaching of key theories in early years, such as child development, the status of children in society and the voice of the child. The work- based elements of the course enable you to reflect on experiences within an Early Years workplace to enable you to link theory and policy with practice.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake significant and independent research projects on areas of interest linked to your professional practice which will support your developing career.

      I gained access to the course through an organisation called ‘Positive People’ and thought it would be a good course for me to complete as I’d always preferred outside, hands-on work instead of working in an office environment, which I’d previously done for more than 20 years in the Transport industry.
