The lecturers are studying themselves and are very passionate about the subject. They big you up! I now understand why we do what we do - theory wise. We know the mathematical and scentific theory, for example, behind wooden blocks (Frobebel). 

What's Next: I am now working for 'Action for Children' the course has helped me to make a difference to young children using 'Flying Start' initiatives.

I studied the Early Years Education and Care: Early Years Practitioner fast-track degree and am amazed by how much I learnt.  I’ve worked in Early Years for nearly 30 years and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the theoretical side of the course and have applied this now in my role, working in Early Years.  I’ve altered my practice to benefit the children’s learning and development.  I never thought I’d have such a thirst for knowledge at this age.  I went from hating Monday mornings to loving that Monday feeling when I knew I was going to be in Uni.  At my age – I’m in my 50s – I didn’t really know much about the world of academia but I’m in it now and it’s absolutely amazing.  I’m really enjoying it and it’s all for the benefit of the children in my care.

Everyone was great and the lecturers were so supportive, they’d really encourage us and praise us. I feel really proud and proud of all of my friends – we worked together as a team and we did it, it was brilliant.  Now, I’m going to go and do a PGCE and am looking forward to a becoming a teacher.
