FdA Early Childhood Studies

Level 5 • Full-time • Children, Schools & Families department


This programme is for people over the age of 18 who are interested in pursuing a career working within the early years sector as, for example, a primary teacher or as an early years practitioner or manager. It is particularly suitable for people who would like to study full-time over one day per week. This foundation degree is essentially the first two years of a degree course; the third year can be completed as a top-up in order to obtain a full degree or honours degree. You will study social science, developmental perspectives, values and ethics, new learning technologies for the early years and consider the creative use of the outdoor environment. You will learn about special needs in education, ways to protect children and how to teach literacy and numeracy skills to early years children. You will conduct an independent study in a topic you are particularly interested in. You will also have the opportunity to develop and apply specialist knowledge, for example learning about how to use the outdoor environment as an effective learning space in conjunction with Wildlife and Marine specialists. The programme also includes a module to develop your own personal and professional skills in readiness for employment, for example team working skills, decision-making, problem-solving and communication. Work-related learning is an integral part of the programme and is built into the majority of modules by providing opportunities for you to apply your learning directly to your specific working environment. Therefore you will also be required to undertake a work placement in an early years setting and this may be on a voluntary or paid basis. Additional costs: Opportunity to take part in outdoor activities: kayaking £24.95 per person Opportunity to meet with a dental practitioner: £5.00 approx per person

Diploma In Childcare And Education

Level 3 • Full-time • Children, Schools & Families department


If you have confidence, enthusiasm, communication skills and patience, then educating children and watching them develop is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding careers you can have. As an early years or primary school teacher you will provide the building blocks on which a child’s academic ability will ­flourish. We offer two options for you to start your career in childcare and education depending on your GCSE results. Our Level 3 course offers you the choice of university study or employment on successful completion of your course. Our Level 2 certificate is ideal should your GCSE results not be what you expected, with the option to progress to Level 3. From early years teaching in nurseries to primary school education, we can help you focus your career path so you can decide what the best employment route is for you. Working with pre-school children (early years) is a delight, as learning techniques tend to focus around play, but it is also an extremely important stage of their lives, as what they learn now can shape their personality, attitudes and behaviour later in life. Primary school teaching becomes much more formal and you will teach a broad range of subjects, write lesson plans and tests, all designed to help the children grow academically. At both our Camborne and St Austell Campuses we have a sector trained team who have vast experience working with Children, Schools and Families. Both sites are also very well resourced with opportunities for practical and theoretical delivery in and outside of the classroom. You will love the ongoing support, both in college and in your workplace setting, developing the transferable skills and knowledge that will increase your progression into careers such as primary teaching, nursery management, child psychology, and speech and language therapy.
