Early Years Foundation Level 3 Course

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) became effective in all early years settings from September 2012. From this date it will be compulsory for all providers of early years and child care settings to deliver the EYFS framework. This course provides guidance for practitioners on meeting the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and it aims to provide useful advice and detailed information for supporting children’s learning and development. The course covers child development, relationships and environment and offers useful hints on planning and resourcing together with ‘reflective practitioner’ exercises throughout which test the knowledge and understanding of the learner.

The principles of the EYFS, which guide the work of all early years practitioners, are grouped into four themes these being:

One of the biggest concerns for any potential student is the financial commitment involved. UK Open College recognise this and have implemented a pay as you study plan to assist students in spreading any fees involved with their course over a manageable period of time. Students are able to pay a deposit upon enrolment followed by a monthly repayment over a set period of time.

We would encourage students to view any related fees as an investment in their future. The majority of investments will provide a rewarding return over a set period of time. Once qualified and in employment students can expect a fantastic return on their investment year after year.

We offer all UK Based students guaranteed acceptance onto this scheme* upon completion of a signed student agreement. Shortly after paying your deposit our accounts department will contact you direct via telephone to gather the required information to complete the agreement. Once received we will forward a digital document via email for your signature. 

*Contact details, employment details and valid UK bank details with the ability to set up direct debit are required for all students applying for our pay as you study plan. If students are unable to provide this information any application may be declined.

IQ Industry Qualifications- Level 3 Early Years Foundation Award

At the end of this course successful learners will be awarded a certificate of achievement by IQ (Industry Qualifications)

Our course has been accredited by IQ, and the course measurable learning outcomes have been benchmarked at Level 3 on IQ's own Customised Qualification Framework (CQF) to allow you to consider the depth of study, difficulty, and level of achievement involved.

The course has been developed by UKDLP and has been accredited and quality assured by IQ. IQ gives formal recognition to an organisation's bespoke courses through their Customised Qualifications Framework.  

Industry Qualifications is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators ('regulators') for England, Wales and Northern Ireland for their qualifications on the national framework ie the Qualifications and Curriculum Framework (QCF).


Receipt of Certification: Certification is awarded by IQ and can take up to 12 weeks to be received after completion of your studies. All certification will be delivered to students direct at their home address. UK Open College have no control over delivery of certification awarded by the external awarding bodies. Any outstanding fees are payable before certification is issued. 


Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 100. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.We would encourage students to serioulsy consider how they plan to complete their chosen course prior to enrolment. Students should think about how they are going to study, where they are going to study and how often. Be realistic!

Speak to family members and help them to understand what you are trying to acheive, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likey you are to get them on your side.

Students are reminded that the time in which they complete is purely down to them as an individual. Completion can be as quickly or as slowly as you wish within the 12 month tuition period. If you require additional time an extension may be available. Extensions are arranged at an additional cost as and when needed.

 

 

This course is supplied in paper format and will be delivered direct to your chosen address. Students are able to complete their course assignments using a word processing programme and email them direct to the tutor. Once received tutors will reply to you direct. We do not accept course assignments via post.

Students can normally expect to receive delivery of their course materials via courier within 3 working days of enrolment being received. However we would ask you to allow 7 working days

All students on this course will be registered to a personal tutor for 12 months who is contactable via email. We also have a team of dedicated advisors to help and advise with any course related queries. The tutors role is to help and support students for the entire duration of their studies. Please remember our tutors are here to help. Never be embarrassed to ask for help.

This course is completed using continual assessment, allowing your tutor to closely monitor your progress every step of the way. Therefore no examination is required. Students will be required to submit a series of assignments throughout their course direct to their assigned tutor. Tutor details will be contained within your study pack. 

Students should understand that part of any study programme requires an element of research on their part. As technology moves forward at a rapid pace a visit to the local library is no longer the chosen method of accessing information. Students are also expected to use the internet for research purposes and can expect to be referred to various blogs and websites such as You Tube and Google amongst other specific websites relating to their chosen subject. Tutors will not give you the answers to complete your assignments.

Students can expect to receive feedback on submitted assignments within 7 days. However we expect delays on this timescale  during holiday periods e.g Summer holidays July/August, bank holidays and xmas. We appreciate your patience during these periods.


In order to help students with the terms and conditions of their enrolment we have tried to keep things simple and easy to understand. No jargon or small print. Our full terms and conditions can be viewed here. 

In our experience the main and most important part of these terms for our students is the cancellation & returns policy. So lets explain these clearly to avoid any misunderstanding. 

Firstly we would request that students check the course syllabus and content immediately upon receipt. This is vitally important. Please ensure that any qualification awarded at the end of your course meets your needs. If in doubt call us on 0121 288 0181 to check before you enrol.

We will then respond to you with further instruction. If you have received a hard copy of your course you will be required to return this at your own cost via courier/recorded delivery before a full refund will be issued. If you have paid a deposit and signed a student agreement you will be charged a £30 cancellation fee. This will be deducted from any deposit paid. 

All returns must remain unused and in resaleable condition. This complies with distance selling regulations 2000. All students are welcome to return their course to us for any reason as long as we have been notified within the 7 days as above. Unfortunately if notification to cancel is received outside of this period your request for a refund will be declined. This does not affect your statutory rights
