Network Meetings

Network Meetings

The Early Childhood Studies Degrees Network holds full network meetings at least twice a year on a week-day, usually at London Metropolitan Univeristy, open to all members of the network.

Working Party Meetings/Standing Committees established by the Strategy Committee

These are set up as necessary to work on specific issues, including quality assurance, research and development issues. Previous working groups developed the ECS degrees with Practitioner Options and the QAA ECS subject benchmark.

The number of meetings is determined by perceived need according to the activties of the network
