Course summary

Are you excited by a career in which you can encourage young children to enjoy learning and make daily progress?The early years environment in primary schools and early years settings is exciting – for children and their teachers. As soon as you begin the programme, you start your journey of professional development towards becoming a qualified teacher.We'll work with you to ensure that the emotional and social development of the children you work with is embedded in all that you do, helping you to understand your influentialrole in young children’s lives.You'll learn how experiential, play-based learning supports young children's development and how, as an effective practitioner, you can have a positive impact on children’s development and learning. Teaching in early years is dynamic, and you'll learn the professional skills related to planning, teaching and assessing, as well as how to manage a setting where children and adults work together in learning.You'll gain an understanding of the transition to Key Stage 1 and then into Key Stage 2 and develop knowledge of both the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1.The Early Years 3-7 programme will enable you to develop the right expertise and values to provide outstanding learning experiences for all children.**School-based training**Over the course of the three-year programme you will complete a minimum of 24 weeks of assessed school-based training, along with additional focus visits. In the first and second years your school-based training is eight weeks; in the final year it's ten weeks. At each stage of training, you will be supported by an expert school mentor, as well as a University link tutor.In the first year, you will gradually take on some of the teacher's role by working with small groups of children, setting activities in areas of provision and moving on to teach whole group lessons.Throughout the second and third year, you will build up the amount of time you spend planning, teaching and assessing children until you have gained the independence needed to be successful in your first year of teaching.**Career opportunities**The vast majority of our graduates go on to work in school or early years settings – initially as class teachers, but then moving up into middle and senior leadership roles. Many of our graduates opt to work abroad. Your QTS award is recognised in many countries around the world, meaning that you can be appointed to a teaching or education-related role almost anywhere. Recent graduates are currently working in schools in Poland, Russia, Oman, UAE and Australia.
