Course summary

Course Summary

This one year, part-time degree is ideal if you are employed in an Early Years setting and leads to Teachers' Standard (Early Years) Award. This one year, part-time degree for graduates who are employed in an Early Years setting want to achieve Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). The Department for Education (DfE) introduced the Early Years Initial Teacher Training qualification to raise the status of the early years workforce, providing specialist practitioners with the knowledge and understanding required to give children the best start in life. Specifically focussed on the 0 - 5 age range, the course builds your understanding of the theory, policy and practice of working with very young children. It equips you to meet all the Teachers' Standards (Early Years) whilst developing your leadership and management skills to continually review, reflect and improve your professional practice.

Careers and employability

A successful assessment and achieving Early Years Teacher Status will provide you with excellent career development opportunities for the future. Individuals with EYTS can work in all private and voluntary settings. Free Schools, new mainstream and alternate provision academies, and existing academies can also employ teaching staff without the requirement for them to hold QTS. Graduates may use their masters-level credit to pursue an MA in Education.
