What will I learn?

Placing you at the forefront of contemporary perspectives and practice in children’s learning and development, this stimulating degree will inspire you, challenge your thinking and equip you with a comprehensive understanding of children and childhood in the middle years (ages 5-11). The programme examines the complexities and challenges of the contexts in which children live, develop and learn, offering international perspectives on children, childhood and education, underpinned by real-life case studies. You will discover what influences and impacts on children’s learning and development and learn how to use a range of technologies to enhance their learning experience. Tailored work-based learning opportunities in each year of study enable you gain experience of working with children across the middle years in different contexts and stand out to potential employers. You will graduate as a children’s practitioner, equipped with the fundamental skills of listening carefully and communicating effectively, able to apply an attitude of ‘unconditional positive regard’ to all aspects of working with children, their families and communities.
