Course Summary

This modular course will support you to develop as a critically reflective practitioner working within the Early Years sector. Through the study of theory and reflection on practice you will gain a deeper understanding of child development and playful learning with particular reference to the EYTS curriculum. Children's engagement with core skills such as mathematical understanding and early reading will be considered in a wider political context. The first phase of the course is taught together with the Early Years Teacher Status course. You will then progress to complete the full MA Education (Early Years) and carry out an enquiry focusing on your own area of interest. This modular course offers a learning environment to help you schedule your study around work and other commitments. Our experienced staff have wide ranging experience and specialisms in Early Years and Education, and will provide support throughout your course. You can often use existing credits you have from relevant study at UWE Bristol or elsewhere towards your total credits (e.g. M Level modules in a PGCE course).
