Program Description

Make a real difference to the lives of young children and their families, and work towards becoming part of the essential early years graduate workforce. This course will support your development in a wide range of professional skills which are essential for working with children (aged 0-8 years) and families, including those with additional needs.

You’ll gain real-world experience of putting your skills into practice through a range of work-based placements such as; children’s centres, schools, family refuge centres, gallery education teams, play rangers, nurseries, family support teams and special needs schools. In relation to placements, you’ll have the option to achieve the Graduate Practitioner Competencies* (which encompass and build upon the Level 3 Early Years Educator requirements) and ensure that you’ll count as ‘full and relevant’ in early years settings.
