These study programmes will provide you with the knowledge required to support and care for children and young people according to their individual needs. You’ll learn about the provisions of care across the early years and education sector, by studying in a well-resourced environment.

You will build on this knowledge and experience through work placements, where you’ll develop confidence and understanding in dealing with people in all settings.
