Learning about the way children think, budding psychologists can discover how infants' minds develop, from language acquisition to comprehending that Santa isn't real. The NCFE-accredited online course designed to ground beginners in the subject and as such, is split into two modules: major developmental issues and the child as an individual. With a multiple choice assessment at the end of each module and a final test, students can leave the course with a level 4 certificate and a nationally recognised award that they can build on. In addition there are unlimited re-sits of the tests, ensuring some truth in the old adage that practice makes perfect.
