A widely recognised qualification, the two-year Foundation Degree in Early Years is designed for experienced childminder and early years practitioners who are working in a variety of early years settings, with families or playgroups and in schools, nurseries and children's centres. The course provides opportunities to develop your knowledge and practice, enhance your career prospects, and gain access to further learning alongside your work.
This course is validated by Oxford Brookes University. Applications are made through UCAS - code X314.
While the course is classed as full-term, because there is a substantial amount of self-study required in order to successful, students attend just one day per week from 9.30am-5.30pm. However, applicants should be prepared for appropriately 15 hours of self-directed study each week on top of their normal attendance at College.
Over a two-year period a substantial amount of learning will take place in the workplace through the planned and supported tasks and projects set, and applicants will take a series of modules during regular classes at college.
The course provides applicants with the opportunity to:• develop their knowledge and practice• enhance their career prospects• gain access to further learning• study while they work.
Employers have been directly involved in the design of the course, which will build upon the practical work you are already undertaking in the workplace to provide clear links between practice and theory.
