The BA in Early Childhood Studies has been developed to meet the identified needs of practitioners in the childcare sector who wish to pursue further education and training in a flexible manner, complimenting and supporting continued employment. This course of study builds on practical experience, enhancing the learner’s skills through exposure to theory, policy, research and work-based learning opportunities. It also aims to provide practitioners currently working in the field of early childhood care and practice an opportunity to upgrade their qualifications, to further develop their skills and to enhance their existing knowledge through a part-time, flexible and accessible academic course.
The BA in Early Childhood Studies and Practice will not be accepting applications into Year 1 of the programme in 2021/22. Applications for advanced entry to Year 2 or Year 3 will still be accepted from those who are eligible. Please contact us for further details.
