Early Years Placements

A Critical Guide to Outstanding Work-based Learning

By Jackie Musgrave, Nicola Stobbs

This is a key text for all those undertaking placements or work-based learning (WBL) in early years settings in the UK. Taking a practical approach underpinned by theory and research, the book guides student practitioners through their WBL to help them achieve an outstanding experience. There is a focus on the variety of child, parent, and practitioner perspectives, plus UK case studies involving the full range of ages from across the early years. While it is invaluable in answering key questions about placements, the book also encourages a reflective and critical approach throughout that develops and promotes professionalism. It is completely up to date with the UK's latest Early Years Foundation Stage and includes reference to the Early Years Teachers' Standards. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Early Years) [Subject: Education]
