Unit 3: Theories of Learning Copy

We have provided you with a series of documents in relation to Children’s development and theories. At Level 3 it is important that you familiarise yourself with different theories of learning and supplement this with research and home study.

You will all bring different experience of working with children and your knowledge of theories. Understanding theories of learning helps you to see the importance of what you are observing in practice.

In our experience, many of the holistic based theories, lead to key soft and harder outcomes. The soft outcomes may include self-esteem, independence and resilience. The harder outcomes may be more learning focused and relate to the curriculum e.g the six learning outcomes from the early years foundation stage.
