New 30-credit short course to update your knowledge and skills following recent changes to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS} statutory framework.

You will:

  • explore current regulatory curriculum and guidance in the Early Years

This course has been designed with employers to ensure that it provides the knowledge and skills needed in the early years sector.

How will I learn?

You will be taught over 12 weeks beginning with a full day in-person launch conference where you can meet the other students on your course on 28th January 2023.

This will be followed by weekly evening live online teaching sessions in the virtual classroom and flexible online learning activities to fit around your work and commitments.
