This flexible qualification means you’ll remain in employment or volunteering whilst undertaking the course, having already completed a suitable Foundation Degree or Higher Education Diploma in Early Childhood. The Professional Studies in Early Childhood (Hons) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University is the natural progression for those who have previously studied our Foundation Degree in Professional Studies (Early Childhood).
The course provides you with a unique learning opportunity, studying alongside others working or volunteering in a variety of services such as education, and health and social care for children aged between 0 and 8 years.
Graduate opportunities have enabled our students to attain managerial positions within their sector, to lead practice with their setting. Many go on to further study to become teachers through our PGCE routes or gain a professional status.
Others take on professional roles in areas such as special educational needs, mentoring, subject support, school, family and welfare liaison roles in the wider educational community and with local authorities working with the full range of age groups and sectors.
