Early Years professionals play a vital role in the development of babies and young children. As natural leaders, Early Years Senior Practitioners raise the standards of growth and learning against a steadfast curriculum and framework.
Promoting best practice and championing quality standards, they ensure all daily objectives are fulfilled. Now you can take your experience to the highest level with our Level 5 Early Years Senior Practitioner Diploma.
The aim is to raise your knowledge, management, and leadership skills to the level of a Senior Practitioner. To do this, we’ll assess your expertise in relevant areas of early learning. The programme starts with a close inspection of care routines, well-being, resilience, and the impression role models have on behaviour. You will learn the value of varying activities, experiences, and learning opportunities to enhance development.
Moving forward, we’ll outline the role managers play in early education and explore holistic childhood development from 0-7. In doing so, you will learn the benefits of early intervention and the effects of transitions on growth. As children will start showing signs of emerging English and Maths, we’ll illustrate how you might develop those skills. You will also look at policies and procedures for safeguarding children.
The course is specially designed for distance learning study. You may be expected to complete assignments, essays, research projects, presentations, video/audio recordings, direct observation of practice, professional discussions, portfolios of evidence and practical learning sessions to meet the requirements of your programme.
Areas covered in the qualification include: qualify environments, early years pedagogy, behaviour, care routines, professional development, Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), safeguarding, inclusion, development, play for learning, partnership working, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), leading and managing; health, safety and well-being; and roles and responsibilities.
