It's ideal for those seeking a qualification whilst working that will enhance professional practice. The Early Years Pedagogue (replacing the Early Years Teacher Specialism) is recognised by the Scottish Government, and many local authorities, as a qualification that provides the opportunity for the early years workforce to develop/strengthen their specialist knowledge of the early years. Its blended approach to learning helps to support professional training and networking across local authorities, alongside practice-based assessments.

The course develops opportunities for student to view their work in nursery and early primary settings in Scotland, in line with contemporary research and international perspectives of what makes effective early years pedagogy. The Early Years Pedagogue incorporates the need for teachers and practitioners to critically reflect on the adult’s role in developing and understanding young children’s learning journeys and narratives alongside recognising the vital role that the environment has to play in developing health, well-being and achievement.
