Early Childhood Studies Poster Conference

Posted: 12th May 2017

Year 2 Early Childhood Studies students recently held a mini poster conference to showcase their recent study of International Perspectives on Education Approaches.

Students produce as part of their assessment an education poster on one selected country. The event was attended by Year 1 students, teaching staff and senior managers. The conference provides students with the opportunity to present to an unknown audience, demonstrate their knowledge, field questions, and network with other students and professionals.

This event is part of a series of developmental days which these students attend as they approach the end of year 2. Last week they also attended a mock interview day which involved an individual presentation, individual interview and written account. The day was well supported by external stakeholders including head teachers, community practitioners and representatives from private day care provision.

Students have commented on the positive value of these experiences which prepares them for the world of work.
