Early years

We’ll put you on the pathway to a worthwhile career where you can have a lasting, positive impact on young children’s education and wellbeing, giving them a firm foundation for future success at school and in life.

You’ll become a specialist in early childhood development, equipped for rewarding roles in nurseries, pre-schools, children’s centres and other early years settings.

Practical experience lies at the heart of the course, so you’ll undertake a range of placements to build your skills working with young children.
