The degree is part time, all workshops are based at The Norfolk Showground in Norwich, whilst tutorials take place on site visits to a variety of settings and outdoor venues. The course takes two years to complete, meaning you can work and study at the same time.

For those of you who already have a Foundation Degree in Early Years Leadership, you may wish to enhance your skills base by studying for the Level 5 Leadership and Management to strengthen those elements of your professional practice.
