This module aims to enable students to acquire the knowledge, practical skills and competence relevant to working as an Early Years' practitioner. The module incorporates an initial safeguarding course and progresses to a focus on the development of knowledge of the EYFS and other relevant Early Years policies and frameworks. In the second semester students undertake a placement in a childcare or Early Years setting; this provides the opportunity for students to relate policy and research to practice in the birth to five age range, thus enhancing their academic understanding of the field. Practice placements will be organised by the Oxford Brookes Partnership Office, in coordination with a range of local settings, as required by QAA. The Partnership Office will place students across a range of Oxfordshire Early Years settings, including day nurseries, children's centres, schools, and pre-schools. Factors influencing placement decisions, such as location and preference of setting, will be taken into account by the Partnership Office. In exceptional circumstances, it may be possible to have a placement outside of Oxfordshire: you will need to talk to the module leader and Partnership Office early in semester 1 if you wish to request this. The majority of settings that work with the module to offer placements are rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted. It should be noted that there are no travel subsidies available for any students in the School of Education on placement, however, the majority of our placements in Oxford are easily accessibly by public transport. Please note: Students are required to attend the complete the compulsory safeguarding course at the beginning of the module as a pre-requisite to going into their placement school/setting. Students must also have DBS clearance and the relevant documentation before they can start their placement - it is recommended that students begin this process of application before semester 1 begins.
