Employers were invited to meet BA (Hons) Young Children's Learning and Development students.

Employers in the education sector were invitied to meet final year students from Hull and Harrogate colleges, to find out about the research they have done into child development.

Learners on the BA (Hons) Young Children's Learning and Development course showcased their work on topics including outdoor play, professionalisation of the workforce and male carers.

A total of 20 students from both campuses invited their mentors, who work in nursery providers across the area, to view their findings.

Early years education specialist, Dr Sally Brown, also attended the event as a guest speaker.

Lecturer Rachael Tyas said the aim of the event was to give students the opportunity to network with local employers.

"This was an excellent chance for our students to demonstrate that they are going to make a positive difference in the workplace and have the knowledge behing them that will help improve quality", she said.

"We believe strongly in professional intergration between work and practice which is why our students also complete at least 10 hours within a placement each week."

"This makes the classroom a richer place to be and ensures our students have the skills they need to get the job they want."

We are now recruiting for 2019, please contact michelle.cameron@hull-college.ac.uk or Rachael.tyas@hull-college.ac.uk or visit our Discover Week open evening from 5pm to 8pm on Tuesday, 15th January.
