Our part-time distance learning courses allow you to gain an academic and professional qualification whilst remaining in employment. Our students continue to work with children and families across a range of settings. The focus is on applying theory to practice. You are therefore required to be in relevant employment, as elements of the course will include assessment of professional skills.
You will develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to become an innovative, reflective and enquiring professional. You will improve your leadership skills and, through informed collaborative professional action, ensure better outcomes for children. You will also gain an understanding of pedagogy and leading learning. The courses are matched to meet the needs of childhood professionals nationally and internationally.
