Study type Taught


This new course is aimed at those registered as practitioners with the SSSC and employed within the sector who wish to become registered as lead practitioners/managers, providing the professional qualification to deliver quality services for children and their parents in an early years setting. Supporting children in the early years can make an important contribution to their future; and a suitably qualified workforce is key to ensuring this support mechanism is in place during their formative years. This course builds on our wealth of knowledge and experience of delivering early years education. Students must be employed in, or have access to, an acceptable professional environment in which knowledge and understanding of childhood practice in Scotland has been developed. Work-based learning forms part of the assessment and therefore you need to be employed for more than 16 hours per week. You must also have employer support and a mentor from your area of practice to support your studies.
