Early years



Working with young children is a highly-rewarding career, allowing you to play an important role in children’s growth and development in a nursery setting. Qualified and experienced practitioners are highly sought after by employers and there are excellent progression opportunities into teaching and management if you wish to continue your studies.

Our highly-regarded, full-time Early Years programmes include significant time spent on work placements, allowing you to forge valuable links with potential employers and really boost your CV. If you’re already employed in a childcare setting, we have flexible work-based qualifications which can improve your earning potential and job satisfaction, allowing you to take on greater responsibility in the workplace.
