Studying for your early years degree: skills and knowledge for becoming an effective early years practitioner
Part of the Early years series
This text provides a one stop shop of accessible and relevant information for all early years students to help them succeed in their degree, increase their employability skills and develop as ethical and critically reflective practitioners. Part one gives guidance for students about learning in HE specifically in the context of early childhood education and care, including course requirements, academic skills and core knowledge. Chapters cover students’ roles and responsibilities, safeguarding, understanding policy, and professionalism and ethical practice. The second part of the book looks explicitly at applying this knowledge and understanding in the workplace before tackling the final research project.
