Overview

Are you passionate about providing children with the very best start in life? Our Early Childhood Studies BA (Hons) course seamlessly combines theory with practical experience, so that you can achieve your career goals and make a positive impact on young children’s lives.

This course is open to International students.

What's covered in this course?

The well-being of babies and young children is at the heart of this degree, which will prepare you to become a confident and competent advocate for children from birth to 5 years. Studying at our £71 million City South Campus, you will have access to excellent facilities to enhance your understanding and knowledge.

You will gain a complete understanding of young children’s needs, how they learn, develop and grow and how their early experiences are so fundamentally important. You will also explore wider concepts to support your understanding such as social justice, social mobility and social responsibility.

As you progress through the course, you will develop your personal and professional skills so that, after university, you should have gained the skills to influence the development of practice, provision and policy, as well as building the resilience and self-assurance needed to support your career progression.  

Graduating from this course presents many rewarding opportunities for you to explore across a variety of UK institutions, such as schools, nurseries and charities. Our staff are dedicated to preparing you for employment and will help you to decide which role or avenue you want to pursue after graduating.

It will be possible for you to work and learn alongside a variety of professionals delivering services that support the wellbeing, development and learning needs of babies and young children through placement opportunities, which occur throughout the programme.

Graduate Competencies

We also offer you the chance to study Graduate Practitioner Competencies as part of the Early Childhood Studies degree. At the point of enrolment you can opt-in to work towards the competencies, which means you will spend more time in practice, gain experience working with children and practitioners across the birth-eight age range, and you will be assessed by us in practice in each year of your degree. Graduate Practitioner Competencies are most useful if you don’t have a Level 3 qualification in early years/childcare and wish to work in practice with young children after you graduate.

More about ECS Graduate Competencies

“I was surprised how interactive seminars are. Before I came to University, I thought every day would be lectures, but with Early Childhood Studies, most of our learning is through seminars. This is a great way to share ideas, challenge yourself and make friends with people on your course.”
Naomi Evans

Course structure

On our BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies degree course, our approach to learning and teaching is designed to develop your confidence, knowledge and skills as you progress through the programme. We will support you in your transition to university through social and group work activities, confidence building activities and scaffolding so you can understand the thinking behind how your university modules and assessments are planned. We continue to support your transition throughout your first year through a core module that supports your developing personal, professional and academic skills.

Some of your modules are shared with students on other programmes from the wider subject area. For example, when thinking about safeguarding and child protection there are common themes and common professional skills required, regardless of the age range you are focusing on. This is one modules that would be shared with students studying on BA (Hons) Working with Children, Young People and Families. While we believe that it's good to have a focus on your particular field of study, your learning experience can be enhanced by working with others who are exploring different, but similar contexts. For this reason there are 40 credits of shared modules between BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies and the BA (Hons) Working with Children, Young People and Families in each year.

Placement is an integral part of the course. There will be chances in your first year to explore and find out information about a range of Early Childhood settings and to visit and shadow professionals working there; this is so you can not only develop professional skills but can also find out about the wide range of professional careers open to you within the field. It's also an opportunity for you to develop transferable skills that will enhance your employability. These experiences are an integral part of the module ‘Working as a Professional’. Later in the first year you will have a block period of time in an Early Childhood setting so you can develop your observation skills and experience how an early years curriculum is planned, delivered and assessed.

In the second year of the programme you will again have a period of placement to build on your previous skills about how babies and young children develop and learn.

We link the course to the University's Graduate+ scheme throughout, which means you will be able to get credit from positive placement outcomes that will contribute to the Graduate+ award scheme. Some modules relate specifically to placement and in order to complete the assignments set you will need to take a proactive approach to placements and actively engage with the work-based learning aspect of the programme.  This will be the case for ‘Observing and Assessing Babies and Young Children’, completed in your first year. By actively engaging with placement and successfully completing the second year module ‘Reflecting on Play, Learning and Pedagogy’, you will be able to move towards meeting the criteria for Early Years Educator. Early Years Educator is a Level 3 qualification that means you can be employed in an Early Years Setting as a qualified member of staff.

In the third year there is no scheduled placement, although depending on the topic you choose to examine as part of the ‘Researching Professional Practice in Early Childhood’ module, you may choose to conduct your enquiry in an early years setting.

As well as learning through practice a variety of approaches to teaching are used.  These include:

  • Workshops
  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Group projects
  • Guest speakers
  • Visits to settings and services
  • Field work – visits to art galleries and museums 

Trips and Visits 

We aim to plan for visits to settings and services to support your learning and development. These vary from year to year but may include museum and art galleries, nurseries and early years settings.

Accreditation or professional associations

Successful completion of the programme, including the level 5 module ‘Reflecting on Play, Learning and Pedagogy’ and the linked placement, will enable you to meet the criteria for Early Years Educator (EYE). The Programme as a whole is matched to QAA Benchmarks Statements for Early Childhood Studies, this together with the required GCSE in English and Maths (already a requirement for entry the programme) meets the criteria for Early Years Educator as determined by DfE.

Employability

Enhancing employability skills 

A BCU Graduate is professional and work-ready, a creative problem solver, enterprising and has a global outlook. Transferrable skills are considered very highly throughout the programme should you decide not to work directly with children and young people in the future. We have embraced the Graduate+ scheme  and there are opportunities throughout the programme for you to receive credit for developing your employability skills. We have a commitment to learning for life and actively encourage you to develop your own research skills and to pursue your learning journey by building on your first degree to Master's level and beyond. From induction through to your final module your tutor team will support you in exploring career pathways linked to young children and their families.
