University of Worcester
The course examines current issues in the provision of care and education for children under the age of 8 with regard to practice and policy in the UK and abroad; the philosophy is that study should be relevant to the workplace, with a strong emphasis placed on reflecting on professional practice in order to bring about personal, professional and organisational improvements; these improvements impact upon the attainment, achievement, motivation and well-being of children directly, or indirectly, through improvement in the quality of service provision; this course is suitable for a range of early childhood professionals working in the early years field.
1st or 2nd Class Honours degree; experienced qualified teachers without a good Honours degree.
Modules include: approaches to educational research (research methods for professional enquiry in education); a dissertation; pedagogy, policy and practice in the early years; communication and collaboration in leading early years practice; effective early years practice and pedagogy; mentoring skills and quality enhancement in early childhood; inclusive early childhood provision.
Most of the assessment is of a written nature, requiring students to read and research widely, reflect upon the material gathered and structure the synthesised ideas into critical, coherent assignments of varying styles and length.
