About

The Leading Early Years Practice programme of University of Worcester explores principles of pedagogy within the particular context of Early Years provision. It unpacks the values that we hold as early years educators and how these impact upon the choices that we make in our work with children.

Overview

The modules of the Leading Early Years Practice programme of University of Worcester consider how we, as individuals, work in partnership for the best outcomes of the child and how our practice is influenced by policy. All modules are underpinned by principles of leading practice and how this can be done most effectively and ethically.

With a focus on the interrelationship of theory with practice, the modules will develop understanding of leadership roles as exemplary models and ‘change agents’ for improvement. There will be opportunity to develop reflective skills and build a sound base of self-knowledge and critical awareness.

Key Features

  • A chance to develop the necessary professional skills and knowledge to deal with complex issues reflectively, systematically and creatively
