Pre-course materials

These tasks will not be formally assessed. However, they will help you to start thinking about education and some of the ideas we engage with. They will form part of the conversations you have with other students and your tutors during Welcome Week and throughout Year One.

We encourage you to discuss these tssk with our student ambassadors and each other via the Facebook group.

Please make a collage (A3 or A2) that represents YOU.

The collage can be digitally produced or involve any media that you wish. Have fun and please bring this with you on your first day.

Please look at one or two of the websites below to answer:

  • Who are they aimed at?
  • What information do they share?
  • What are the current issues in the early years sector?

Nursery world
Foundation years
Pre school Learning Alliance (PLA)
Children and Young People Now (CYPN)
National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA)

Please take notes and clippings/downloads if possible and bring your findings to your first modules in the first week of October where we will discuss current happenings in the early years sector.

Please watch our short film which demonstrates how to complete your first task on student folio. This is an additional learning platform that we use on the course where you will build a portfolio of your work. Some of your assignments will be completed on this platform.

Watch the film
