It also focuses on the expertise of adults who work with young children and how these adults support and nurture children. Key topics that you will study include constructs of childhood; the value of play for child development; the importance of creativity for young children; ethical research involving children; international approaches to early childhood education and care; and the development of policy and legislation in relation to children in their early years. The degree is relevant to students who wish to pursue professional qualifications in the field of education (within school early years settings, as well as, other education-based settings) or as a Teacher (following a PGCE course).

Health & Wellbeing

Recent years have seen widespread recognition of the need to move beyond medicine with a greater emphasis on the promotion of health and wellbeing. New government initiatives and policies are giving this greater priority than ever before. Health and Wellbeing is a vibrant, multidisciplinary degree in which you will explore a range of issues and debates relevant to health and wellbeing in contemporary society.
