As a fully inclusive Early Years Centre, with a strong focus on how both children and adults learn, our practice in the Research Base is rooted in the Principles of Andragogy.

Currently there are over 350 students on roll, studying on Level 3 courses, Undergraduate programmes and Post graduate programmes and a healthy ITT & EYITT programme. We work with a network of schools locally and nationally.
