Course content

Endorsed by the government, this course gives professional recognition to practitioners who have the skills needed to lead high-quality early years practice. The course takes a strong practical focus and is designed to be studied alongside work in an early years setting, enabling you to continue with your current employment while you study and providing you with an employee incentive grant to have a contrasting placement elsewhere to enable you to become a specialist in the 0-5 age group. If you do not currently have a role in an early years setting, we will support you to find suitable employment.

Concepts of leadership and management will be explored, including managing and measuring the impact of change. Contemporary and controversial issues will also be examined, to strengthen your ability to engage critically with information sources.

The course is completely funded, including £7,000 for your employer, enabling them to release you for 10% of the time and to fund supply cover.
