Student Profiles

Rosanna Hoadley

This course allows me to develop my practice through working collaboratively with lecturers, placement mentors and like-minded peers. I have enjoyed being able to visit a variety of Early Years settings too. The lecturers have supported me to develop skills of critical and reflective thinking and I've gained confidence in my Early Years practice.

Josie Hack

I've made new lifelong friendships and know they will be a source of support and knowledge throughout my Early Years career. I've enjoyed finding my own pedagogy and implementing new ideas for the children that have enhanced my setting. The lectures are insightful and now I find myself questioning the dominant discourse and finding my own narrative. I have enjoyed the challenges of this course and the opportunities it has provided me to expand my knowledge.
