Foundation Degree in Early Years

General

Program Description

The Foundation Degree in Early Years at Kensington and Chelsea College is run in collaboration with Kingston University at Level 4 and Level 5. This course combines academic study with work-based learning. All students attend college for one day between 3 pm and 9.30 pm on a Tuesday. To apply for the course, you must meet the following criteria: You will have an appropriate Level 3 qualification such as the Diploma in Child Care and Education or Early Years, NNEB, NVQ Level 3 or equivalent.

You should have a minimum of two years’ prior experience in an appropriate setting and must be employed or undertaking voluntary work in an appropriate setting for at least 16 hours per week for the duration of the course.
