About this course


Course option

2.0years

Part-time | 2020

This is a programme written to support the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and to introduce students to the Early Years Professional Status.

Students need to be employed within an early years setting and the course is delivered as a day release over one afternoon and evening per week, requiring minimal release from work. The course relies heavily on work-based learning and students apply and practise theory in the workplace and use their workplace experience in a range of assessment tasks.

All successful students have the opportunity to apply for the BA (Hons) Early Years Care and Education top-up, validated by Coventry University, with just one further year of part-time study at Warwickshire College Group

Assessment methods

All modules are assessed by coursework - there are no exams associated with this course. Students need to complete a range of assignments based on theory and personal practice.

Much of the assessment evidence is generated within the workplace and is relevant to the student's current job role.

The course is designed for employed students and there is a great deal of support for students who are new to study at this level.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later.
