What will I learn?

**Change young children’s lives for better. Learn about young children and maximise their potentials.****The Early Childhood Studies Foundation Degree has been designed for those who are currently working or want to work with young children under the age of eight years. The programme gives students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills to work in a variety of different fields.**As a student on this programme, you will learn to recognise and champion the uniqueness of every child by exploring the key factors that affect them and their families. Students will look at and explore their understanding of children’s development, the importance of play, welfare, education and children’s rights and current government legislation and policy.The course ensures that students are fully equipped and have the necessary foundations, such as the Early Childhood Graduate Practitioner Competencies which are embedded throughout level 4 and 5 study, preparing students for progression to level 6 and employment within the sector. The role and importance of research within early education is paramount, and students will be able to investigate how published research influences policymakers and their practices. Students are taught by a team that comes from a wide range of professional backgrounds, and whom are experts in their field. They have strong partnerships with local providers, and many of them have worked in an early year setting internationally, adding value and depth to the course. An integral part of the programme is the 440 hours of placement undertaken by each student. Whilst on placement, students will experience professional work through a variety of educational organisations, community settings and children’s charities. Students will record, reflect and monitor their growth and individual professional expertise to tailor their own career and academic progression. Learning on this programme is holistic, and students will be encouraged to collaborate with their peers and colleagues. Taught seminars and lectures focus on interactive discussion and debate focused on the development of professional dialogue.This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. For the placements in your programme, TEC Partnership will do everything it can to ensure you have the opportunity to complete the placement element of your programme and/or potentially, where possible, amend the programme, removing the requirement for placement (or part thereof) if required.
