Welcome to Curriculum and Assessment in Early Years: Workplace Project. This course is designed to further develop your theoretical and practical knowledge about child development and learning, curriculum and assessment in Early Years, as well as provide you with the opportunity to carry out your own piece of research. This research can be in the form of practitioner research, a small-scale workplace study, inquiry or investigation. The different methods of study that are available to you will be discussed in class.
This course aims to provide you with a thorough understanding of the important role of implementing curriculum and assessment in Early Years. By critically analysing Early Years theories, research and practice, it is envisaged that you will gain further understanding and insight into the professional roles in Early Years. To successfully complete this course you will need to have a good understanding of the legal and ethical responsibilities when implementing early years educational programmes, such as duty of care responsibilities, safeguarding children, knowledge of the rights of children, equal opportunity and anti-discriminatory practices. You will also require a very thorough understanding of how to best lead practice in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE, 2012) along with sound knowledge of approaches to research.
It is envisaged that the knowledge gained in this course will assist you with your Early Years curricular development, implementation, evaluation and policy development, ultimately improving your practice. All the best with your research, I hope that it is both an enjoyable and rewarding experience for you.
