Childhood and Education

Subject Areas > Childhood and Education
​​Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children and their families? Are you fascinated by why and how children learn and develop in the early part of their life? Do you want to give children the best possible start in life?

If you’ve answered yes, you’re in the right place. Delivered by active researchers with extensive professional experience, our Childhood and Education courses will give you the skills needed to become a leader in working with children in their early years.

You’ll develop a practical understanding of the field grounded in theory, engaging with topical and controversial debates. We’ll then give you the chance to apply that theory in a variety of child and family settings during two professional work placements.

Our courses offer the chance to specialise in a variety of routes, from education and t​heology, to child and family support. Whatever you choose, you’ll be part of an academic community that’s developed an outstanding reputation in the field of childhood and education.
​Want to become a teacher? Leeds Trinity delivers Primary Education and Secondary Education​ PGCE courses.
