Studying with us is different, we believe in a personal experience, which means all students benefit from smaller class-sizes and one-to-one contact time with their tutor.

    The Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies gives you the opportunity to fit study around work and enhance your knowledge and further your learning.

    Flexible in its format and led by accomplished academics who are also experienced childhood practitioners, this course allows you to work and study at the same time.

    We believe that working with children within your studies is vital – so it’s built into the course. We also understand that you may already have a wealth of experience in working with children, or even be looking to change career paths, so through this course our goal is to help you become a more rounded professional.

    Why Study a Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies?

    This innovative, work-based course offers you the best of both worlds: you'll be able to build your knowledge and gain a qualification while continuing to work.

    If you are working on a paid or voluntary basis with children and young people in settings such as schools, nurseries, childcare, foster care, child minding, youth groups, cadets, or library services, this course is a great option. You'll build on your existing experience and will learn new skills, so that you develop academically and professionally.

    The focus on Special Educational Needs means you'll be able to explore the issues relating to this area of practice in greater depth.
