Foundation Degree in Early Years
Philippa Hines, 39, is a childminder from Basildon and graduated from the Foundation Degree in Early Years in 2015.
"I would recommend this course as you have the opportunity to study for your degree alongside working full time. The course curriculum was also really interesting.
"I found the foundation degree stimulating."
"Also, for me, it was convenient as I am local so it wasn't far to travel. All of the teachers were very supportive and friendly.
"In the future, I want to progress to the BA honours in Education Studies Early Years."
"It feels really good and all worth it having graduated. If I could give one piece of advice to someone thinking of studying the course would be if you are committed to go for it"
