About this course

Do you have a Level 5 qualification in Education or Early Years Childcare and wish to gain a full degree? This BA Hons (Top Up) course leads on from the knowledge gained in the Foundation Degree in Early Years and challenges you to focus on other elements that will challenge and enhance your professionalism within the sector.

You will study 5 modules at Level 6:

**Leading and Managing Professional Practice**
The Leadership & Management modules will draw on your own experiences - offering an action plan for change as part of your reflections. The 4000 word portfolio assessment will consider the historical and political values of the subject and how this impacts on the Early Years Sector.

**Learning, Teaching and Caring in Adventurous Education.**
In Adventurous Education you will spend time out of the classroom, exploring other learning enviroments such as the beach, forest and parks. You will be challenged to think 'Outside of the Box' in order to enhance your own practice.

**Special Educational Needs and Disabilities**
The subject of Special, Educational, Needs & Disabilities(SEND) is taught by a SEND professional who will lead you through the many challenges and implications of ensuring the needs of all children and young people are met in their learning environment.

**Children’s Literature and the Media**
The Children’s literature and the media module explores the genres through which children can learn in society today and questions the validity of them! You will also look back at how the evolution of the media by which children can learn has changed.

**Independent Project : Double Module**
Throughout the course duration you will be required to research a topic of your choice that links to your professional practice and submit a dissertation of 8000 words as your final piece of work.

As a student of Crawley College, you will have access to all of our services, which includes study support, the Students' Union and our library's online resources. In addition, you will be able to access the library services and online support from the University too.

Special features of this programme include:
Students can progress onto a teaching top up qualification or move onto studying at Masters Degree level at University.

At the end of the course you will have the opportunity to celebrate your achievement with a full graduation ceremony with other collaborative BA Hons (Top Up) Degree students at Chichester Cathedral.
