Childcare and Men in Practice

UHI Moray


Main campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


The Scottish Government recognises the need to diversify the early years workforce in order to ensure that children have access to positive male role models from an early age.

This course is an all male course, delivered in the evening to accommodate existing employment commitments.

You will explore a child's development from birth, and will look at the benefits of play and how that links to learning. You will begin to understand and develop your own personal attributes that contribute towards an excellent practitioner.

You will work together to look at the factors which can impact on a child's overall development, and learn about the professionals involved in supporting children and their families.

You will learn from experienced practitioners who have up-to-date industry knowledge.
