We offer our courses, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies, BA (Hons) Young People, Family and Community, BA(Hons) Childhood and Family Studies and Education Studies and BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs, Disability, Inclusion and Childhood and Family Studies PART-TIME that includes day time sessions. However if you would like to study more flexibly, for example of an evening, we offer part time Foundation Degrees in Early Years Services and Supporting Children in Primary Education at our college partners. After completing your part time Foundation degree you can then top up to a final year of a part- time BA degree course (such as any of the above), these will however include day time session. In topping up we offer BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs, Disability, Inclusion and Childhood and Family Studies part-time which is equally flexible as the foundation degree, where lectures take place in the evening (6 -8pm) at University Centre Telford (UCT)


Although these undergraduate courses (except Early Years Initial Training) do not confer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), they are suitable degrees to make you eligible for Postgraduate Primary teaching or in some cases PGCE Post Compulsory Education
