Foundation Degree in Early Years (Part-time)


This course is a great next step if you already have a Level 3 qualification and experience in childcare and want to develop your skills further. It has been designed in consultation with childcare employers to give you the valuable skills employers really need and will allow you to work at a higher level in a variety of settings in the sector.

The programme has been devised in collaboration with consortium Colleges and the University of Hertfordshire to enable students to progress onto the University's BA (hons) Degree in Early Childhood Education Studies, upon successful completion of the course.

Students can use their BA Honours Degree for application to a PGCE or Graduate Teacher Status providing they fulfil the criteria for these programmes.

Please be aware, for 19/20 intake we will only be offering the part-time route - Fees are listed as per year.

Our Foundation degree programmes are run in partnership with, and validated by, the University of Hertfordshire. The official university code for this course is HEN.
