Course content

Our PGCert Education - Early Childhood is ideal for early years professionals and managers.

We designed this course in conjunction with Oxfordshire Local Authority. It provides practitioners with an opportunity to update themselves on the latest research on:

  • child development
  • early years policy
  • early years practice.

This course is a forum for sharing experience and developing your knowledge of:

  • child development
  • the early years curriculum
  • the particular challenges of leadership in an early years context.

We work in close partnership with schools, nurseries, children's centres and other early years settings across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
