Early Years Teachers who meet the Teachers’ Standards (Early Years) will be specialists in early childhood development, trained to work with babies and young children from birth to five. They will be graduate leaders responsible for organising and leading high quality practice in early years settings.

The University of Northampton is one of the main providers of Early Years Teacher Training (0-5) in the East Midlands. We have over forty years of experience in teacher training, education and research and are committed to inspiring change which transforms the lives of children and young people.

All aspects of The Early Years Teacher Status programmes have been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education in its recent monitoring assessment (November 2014). The University was additionally praised for developing a “post-qualification programme for newly qualified trainees who make a substantial contribution to the trainees’ professional formation”.

Course content

The programme consists of two routes for graduates (GEB and GEM) – both with fees for tuition and assessment covered by government funding.

1. Graduate Employment based (GEB) – part time 9-12 months.

Suitable for experienced early years practitioners who are graduates in paid employment in an early years setting who require training and further experience to demonstrate the Teachers’ Standards (Early Years). They should have either a relevant degree and at least a year’s full time experience of working across most of the age range 0-5 or a non-relevant degree and at least 2 year’s full time experience of working across most of the age range 0-5.

On successful completion, you will be recommended for and awarded Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). The programme will build on and develop your knowledge and experience gained as an early years practitioner such that you can demonstrate the standards for early years teachers required by the Department for Education and exceed the minimum expectations for each Standard.

The programme covers a range of topics including:
-Child development.
-Safeguarding.
-Diversity.
-Pedagogy.
-Language and literacy.
-Maths and phonics.
-Working with parents.
-Professional development.
-Leading and supporting others.

Assessment

Assessment against the Teachers’ Standards Early Years is continuous. Your teaching, including planning and assessment, is assessed against the Teachers’ Standards (Early Years); there are no formal academic assignments. Employer and partner settings and schools share the responsibility for assessment during the practical teaching.

2. Graduate Entry Mainstream (GEM), PGCE Early Years (EYTS) 0-5 – full time 12 months.

Suitable for graduates from any discipline with little or no experience of working in early years. At least two weeks of experience in an Early Years setting is required.

On successful completion, you will have achieved 60 credits at Masters’ Level (PGCE) and be recommended for and awarded Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). The programme will build on and develop your knowledge and experience gained as an early years practitioner such that you can demonstrate the professional standards for early years teachers required by the Department for Education and exceed the minimum expectations for each Standard.

You will spend a substantial part of the programme in setting or school-based placements in our partnership settings and schools, which will enable you to develop high levels of competence in practical teaching in a range of educational contexts. There are three assessed setting/school-based placements where you will be assessed against the Professional Standards for Early Years Teachers and submit a Record of Professional Evidence. You will have a trained mentor in each placement and a Personal Academic Tutor at the University to support your professional development.

There are two compulsory modules at Level 7 which are worth 60 credits and can be used to contribute to a full MA in the future. The modules are Teaching, Learning and Assessment and Professional Studies.

Course modules (16/17)

-Professional Studies
-Teaching, Learning and Assessment
-Setting Experience 1, 2 and 3 Early Years (0-5)

The Graduate Entry Medicine course is delivered by the University of Nottingham in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site. Read more

Overview

The Graduate Entry Medicine course is delivered by the University of Nottingham in partnership with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital’s site.

The four-year medical course commenced in September 2003 and is open to graduates of any discipline. There is an annual intake of 87 home/EU students who are based in Derby for the first 18 months of their course. For the Clinical Years, these students will combine with the students from the five-year course and whilst on placement will rotate around many of the teaching hospitals in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, and in the community. Experiencing different sites across the counties is an educational and desirable feature of your training. Currently our students are on placements at the following hospitals:

Nottinghamshire

Queens Medical Centre, City Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Nottingham
Kingsmill Hospital and Highbury Hospital, Mansfield
Newark Hospital, Newark-on-Trent
Derbyshire

Royal Derby Hospital, Derby
Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Chesterfield

Lincolnshire
Lincoln County Hospital, Lincoln
Grantham Hospital, Grantham
Pilgrim Hospital, Boston
The course aims to widen access to a broader range of applicants than school leavers with A levels. It is intended to build on the intellectual skills acquired by students who have undertaken a first degree.

After successful completion of the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) degree, graduates are required to undergo a further two years of foundation doctor training. Full registration is granted by the GMC at the end of the first year of this training. Non-British nationals graduating from UK medical schools are subject to work-permit restrictions.

Eligibility

Graduates will need a minimum of a lower second-class degree and must apply through UCAS, course code A101.

In addition you must have sat the GAMSAT examination (which is designed to ensure the entrants have the requisite knowledge and reasoning skills) in either September 2014 or September 2015.

NB: registration for GAMSAT and application to the School of Medicine via UCAS are separate processes and both are required for admission to the graduate entry course.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on work experience, as we want to ensure that you are making a well-informed choice about your future career, something which a few days shadowing would not provide. Relevant experience could include volunteering in a care home, working as a healthcare assistant within a hospital.

You also need to complete a satisfactory health check and criminal records checks - for more information see our "Fitness to Practise" information.

English language requirements

IELTS 7.5 (no less than 7.0 in any element)
Pearson Test of English (Academic) 74
Certificate of Proficiency in English: Grade B
