This Foundation Degree, delivered at Wiltshire College & University Centre's Trowbridge campus, has been designed in partnership with employers and is aimed at those progressing from Level 3 NVQ or BTEC qualifications, A Level students, those with an Advanced Modern Apprenticeship or current 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
- Gain access to further learning
- Study while you work
Employers have been directly involved in the design of the course which will build upon the practical work you will undertake or are already undertaking in the workplace / placement to provide clear links between practice and theory.
Wiltshire College offers a route into Higher Education for practising early years practitioners. Over a two year duration for two days a week, a substantial amount of your learning will take place in your workplace through the planned and supported tasks and projects we will set you. This course is also available as a part time study option over three years.
You will undertake study in areas such as child development, communication and language, reflective practice, leadershp and management issues in early years.
You will take a series of modules during regular classes at the college. In this way, you gain access to the theory and debate while remaining rooted in your everyday work with young children.
