Early Years

This course will enable you to consider at a deeper level the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are necessary for those working with young children and families. Learn how to review the significant contribution you make to the culture of educational, health and care improvement that are central to the enhancing outcomes for children and families. Issues relating to accountability and how we measure the impact of our work are analysed and linked to the development of sustainable practices. The course: analyses the complexity of the interaction between care, learning and contexts, and the range of ways in which participants, including children, parents/carers, practitioners, teachers and other professionals can influence the learning and care process; examines the societal and organisational structures and purposes of educational and care systems, and the possible implications for learners, the learning process and the holistic development of children; critically evaluates current research and advanced scholarship within the sector; enables you to improve your practice through engagement in professional discussions and practitioner research.
