Course content

Providing children with a quality early childhood education experience contributes to their education success in later years. If you are passionate about equipping young children with the skills to be engaged lifelong learners, then a career in early childhood education is for you. Work with infants and young children to inspire and stimulate their learning and skill development.

This specialisation will qualify you to teach infants and children from birth to eight years of age in childcare, kindergarten and preschools, and to support children's transition to school.

You will gain an understanding of learning at the heart of teaching by examining the learning process and the aspects that influence it, while building a repertoire of strategies to manage young children's learning. Drawing on contemporary theories and practices of early childhood education you will gain an appreciation of the positive impact and power teaching can have on influencing young children's learning and development.

You will engage with current education policies and priorities, at the local and international level, and learn to apply these in practice. You will learn to develop the required skills to create sustainable partnerships across networks.

You will examine the importance of literacy and numeracy in early childhood education as well as the importance of play in a young child's development. By gaining an understanding of how young children learn scientific and technological concepts in everyday contexts, you will be equipped to explore ways in which digital technologies can enhance learning.

You will gain professional experience through 60 days of supervised teaching placements in early childhood settings.

Graduates of this course are prepared for leadership in early childhood educational settings.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three parts. Orientation studies, relevant across all specialisations, and specialist education studies come together and are applied in context in professional experience and inquiry.

Part A: Orientation studies
These studies provide an orientation to the field of Education. You will consider the nature of learning and the influences upon it, and the nature of teaching and teachers' work within the broader family and community context within which children's and young people's learning takes place. You will also develop your understanding of literacy as the basis of how we learn, both formally and informally, across the age span.

Part B: Specialist education studies
These studies will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills relevant to thoughtful, innovative and evidence-based practice within your chosen specialisation. You will acquire both the broad principles of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment that underpin the teaching and learning of children and young people in varied education settings, and the specific knowledge required to apply these principles in particular school learning areas.

Part C: Applied professional practice
Professional experience placements in educational settings relevant to your teaching specialisation will enable you to connect the theoretical components your course with practical aspects of teaching and learning under the valuable guidance of practitioners. You will also study the complex and powerful role that teachers have as leaders in classroom, school, and community settings, with the power to change, and develop strategies to enable you to take your place as an active contributor to shaping education locally and globally. If you are in a single sector specialisation, you will also have the opportunity to undertake an extended professional project.
