Course description

Children's Development and Learning Foundation Degree

The course is assessed through on-going assessment including: essays, reports, presentations, and an electronic portfolio. There are no exams on the Foundation Degree.

This full-time programme requires significant independent study to support learning.

The professional-standard kit that we have is just amazing. So that was what initially pulled me in. Then, it was the support I got from my colleagues as the job progressed.
