The Early Years Educator is aimed at 16-19 year olds who are interested in pursuing a course in Early Years childcare. Students will gain experience in a variety of settings and gain knowledge of working with children up to 7 years. From September 2014, the Early Years Educator qualifications will be the only to confer a licence to practise.
Students on this course will attend college in a block of two days a week over two years. They will also spend two days a week in placement in a variety of childcare settings.
The course is structured around four themes: Health & Well-being; Legislation, Frameworks and Professional Practice; Play, Development and Learning for School Readiness and Professional Development. Click View Course Information below for more information on the topics covered within each theme.
This course can lead to a career working with children and entry into the workforce as an Early Years Educator. Students wishing to progress to Higher Education could continue to the Foundation Degree in Early Years or the BA Hons in Early Years (both offered at the college). Applications to join the Teaching and Learning Support FdA or the BA Hons in Teaching and Learning Support, at the college, would also be considered.
