The course was full of useful information and topics, and I loved that it was assignment based instead of exams. The hands on prac work was really good to give you an understanding of exactly what it would be like to work as an early childhood educator.

Student review
Covers the necessary theory in a mainly interesting way, but the best aspect of the course was the term-long internship. Here you will learn more than any other unit and prepare for actually being a teacher. More assistance could be given in finding placement schools, but if you are self-motivated and dedicated this is an excellent teaching degree.

Hard to study as there was barely any practical work to apply to.
