Additional information

Course Information You’ll learn how experiential, play-based learning supports young children’s development and how, as an effective practitioner, you can have a positive impact on that learning. Teaching in early years is dynamic, so you will learn the professional skills related to planning, teaching and assessing, as well as how to manage a setting where children and adults work together in learning. You will gain an understanding of the transition to Key Stage 1 and develop knowledge of both the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1. We’ll give you the opportunity for school-based training where you will gain a deeper understanding of the Teachers’ Standards, and how to apply theory to practice. You can also complete an alternative professional work placement where you explore learning in a setting other than a classroom e.g. special provision, schools abroad, museums and library services.
