The Foundation Degree in Professional Studies has been designed with employers and combines academic study with work-related learning to equip people with the relevant knowledge and skills for working with children and young people.
By undertaking the Foundation Degree, employees can directly apply the knowledge gained from their studies to help improve their practice.
The Foundation Degree in Professional Studies has been designed to suit employers and employees and to minimise disruption to working roles.
A typical full time foundation degree course lasts two years and is equal to the first two years of an honours degree. It can be converted into a full Honours degree with further study, following a successful application and interview. There are also part time options available.
Formal qualifications are an advantage but not always necessary if the relevant prior experience has been gained and will be taken into account upon admission.
