Our one-year ‘top-up’ degree is for foundation and honours graduates who wish to retrain in early years education, with a focus on leadership and management. Lectures take place one day a week to fit around early years work schedules. With a dedicated teaching staff to support your learning, you will develop your ability to lead practice across the early years foundation stage, support and mentor colleagues and raise standards in multi-agency settings. You will also undertake a dissertation, which will give you the opportunity to explore a specialist area of early years. You will have the opportunity to graduate with both an honours degree and Early Years Teacher Status.
