Overview

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 programme 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.

The Professional Studies in Early Childhood (Hons) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University aims to provide you with an insight into effective management and leadership within the children’s workforce. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your understanding of the complex factors that prevent children from reaching their potential and work on your application of problem-solving skills in addressing these.

Careers & Further Study

Graduate opportunities have enabled our students to attain managerial positions within their sector, to lead the practice with their setting. Many go on to further study to become teachers through our PGCE routes or gain professional status.
