Overview

This Early Years degree focuses on working with children from birth to eight years. It equips you with the understanding and skills to support the learning and development needs of young children.

You’ll undertake a placement for one day per week, as well as in week-long blocks throughout the year. This will allow you to link theory to practice around areas such as activity planning, assessment and recording procedures, and Welsh language development.

You’ll also develop a range of professional and entrepreneurial skills by working as part of a team with practitioners in a range of settings.

USW’s Early Years Education degree is recognised by Social Care Wales (SCW) and can be found on their List of Required Qualifications. Graduates will achieve Early Years Practitioner status alongside their academic qualifications.

Career paths typically include those in education, working in schools, nurseries, children’s charities and integrated children’s centres, as well as some graduates going on to gain their Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and becoming qualified teachers. Follow us on Twitter
