Childhood is a short period of rapid development where highly skilled practitioners enhance children’s experiences, resulting in improved outcomes for children.
Awarded by the University of Hull but delivered locally here at the University Campus North Lincolnshire (UCNL) the Foundation degree is suited to practitioners in employment who wish to gain further knowledge and develop their skills to ensure the best outcomes for the children they work with.
A BA (Hons) Children’s Learning and Development is available for students who wish to continue their studies to gain a level 6 qualification. Two distinct pathways are offered, Early Childhood or Education, supporting those who work with children in education settings.
