Developing and innovating educational training programmes is a top priority here at TELLAL.  We understand how important it is to provide the most up to date methodologies and techniques to new and existing teachers.  Their work in the classroom will significantly impact the way future generations embrace the world around them.  That is why they need the best.  Our unique approach to comprehensive and fulfilling blended learning courses offers a higher standard of pedagogical training and qualifications that are recognised both locally and internationally.  That standard of care is even more essential in the first years of a child’s educational journey, which is why we are delighted to announce the launch of the TELLAL Extended Diploma in Global Teaching Practice with its Early Years specialism.

Why Early Years is So Important

Early childhood development is one of the most critical times in a child’s life.  It is when they start to form external family relationships, interact with others and begin to form interests that will define their character.  As well as helping to teach basic skills, Early Years teaching needs to include the building blocks for developing social and emotional skills.  According to UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), Early Years teaching should aim “at the holistic development of a child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid and broad foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing”.

Early Years and the EDGTP

As well as the extensive features of the TELLAL Diploma in Global Teaching Practice, the Extended DGTP has been carefully structured to promote a critical understanding of Early Years pedagogy with a specialist unit that centres on teaching and learning theory alongside child development.  For those looking to focus their teaching career in the Early Years arena, this course is the ideal choice, especially given that it is awarded by Qualifi and approved by both KHDA and Ofqual, so participants leave with a qualification that is recognised both locally and internationally.  Within the course, participants will explore, analyse and evaluate Early Years specialist pedagogy.  They will grow to demonstrate an awareness of the complexity of Early Years Teaching and how scholarship can inform and enrich practice.  Participants will also learn to recognise the importance of on-going critical reflection and how this shapes their thinking and practice as a teacher of Early Years.
