Department Leader: Vikki Fraher
The GCSE Child Development course will seek to encourage an understanding of the overall needs of young children and the social and environmental influences that affect their development in a contemporary, changing and multicultural society. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to:
- Increase your knowledge and understanding of human needs, the interdependence of individuals and groups, and the influence of social, cultural and economic factors.
- Foster your critical and analytical approach to decision making and problem solving.
- Develop the knowledge and skills required for the effective and safe management of relevant resources.
You will need general stationary (pens, pencils), and a memory stick would be very helpful.
