Candidates should note that provision within the short, long and full-time pathways will be tailored to address individual needs. Additional study will be provided from within our existing portfolio of early childhood modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels which are delivered on a part-time basis and mostly in the evening. Undergraduate modules are available by distance learning. Candidates will also receive the support of a mentor, project manager and tutors. Funding for the EYPS provision is granted against government priorities and the key target groups are those working in Children’s Centres, settings offering full day care and the private and voluntary sectors. More details of funding can be found on the CWDC website. Provision for eligible candidates will be fully funded and supply cover will be paid to settings to release you.

Concerns about eligibility should not stop you applying as we will assess this on receiving your application.
