Our Curriculum

Vocational: Children's Play, Learning & Development

In KS4, students studying for Level 2 in this BTEC course will be assessed through one external exam, The Patterns of Child Development. They will also complete two assignment based units that explore the benefits of play based learning and how adults implement inclusive practice.  The course is designed to give students the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of, and develop skills in, the Early Years sector in education.

Where possible, students will create studies based on practical experiences and visits to real Early Years settings, such as the Golden Valley Pre-school in Peterchurch.
