Childhood Practice degree offered at the University of the West of Scotland is delivered in evenings or on day release andsd is designed to meet the standard for childhood practice through study of learning within childhood, leadership and management, reflective practice and research.
This course also gives you the option of taking a language module, which can count towards your degree. These modules cover multiple languages and range from absolute beginner to near-native speaker level. The cost of your language module is included in the tuition fees.
The learning approaches are based on extending knowledge to support and enhance practice through analysis of critical incidents using problem-based learning. The learning and assessment is embedded in work-related practice and builds upon prior learning and existing knowledge to meet the Scottish Social Services Council regulatory requirements for lead practitioner employment.
The first module on reflective planning allows the learner to identify where their existing learning and practice matches the Standard for Childhood Practice and to create an action plan for the remainder of the programme. One strand of the programme looks at aspects of leadership for learning from 0-16 and focuses on early level learning and wider community learning.
Our course is professionally recognised by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
