Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The Bachelor Degree programme EDUCATOR IN EARLY CHILDHOOD SERVICES aims to provide the professional skills required by anyone wishing to become an educator in nursery services or a childcare worker in various community pre-school services and family support services such as play groups and parent-children centres. Designed to achieve these professional skills, the programme consists of three components:

- theoretical foundations (pedagogy, psychology, sociology and anthropology) allowing students to understand children's condition in contemporary society

- the main existing pedagogical and educational approaches

- the practical skills needed for providing education services in the community.

Particular attention will be paid to methodological expertise , providing graduates with appropriate educational planning skills based on in-depth educational needs analysis of individual children and groups. The programme also trains graduates to interact with children's families and provide parents with direct and indirect support.

Educators in Childhood Social Services complete their studies with knowledge of foreign languages to level B1. Study will here include acquisition of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking ) and compulsory attendance of lessons, following criteria to be specified by the study programme consistent with guidelines from the Academic Bodies.

The learning programme focuses particularly on internship periods in the various early-childhood services run by the Region, as well as practical workshops scheduled for the second half of the programme.
