Employment Opportunities

There are many employment opportunities for those that successfully achieve a Foundation Degree and/or BA Hons in Early Years, Teaching and Learning Support or Working with Children in Early Years & Education (which are sector endorsed) can progress to achieve Early Years’ Professional Status. This means you will meet the Government target of ensuring each Early Years setting as a graduate leader.

The nature of Foundation Degrees means that they have a strong emphasis on work-based learning. This makes a graduate recruit attractive to an employer as you will have insight and preparation for the world of work and can apply the necessary skills immediately.

As part of your course, you will receive advice from specialist practitioners, from industries such as:

– Safeguarding
– Educational
– Child Psychologist
– Forest Schools

Many of our students have gained more responsibilities in their current roles from completing the Foundation Degrees with many gaining promotion. Read more on alumni success here.
