Current government reforms in education are focused on early childhood development and the importance of high quality early years provision in preparing young children for the best start in life. So if you’re aspiring to be an early years specialist and want to train to teach young children from birth to five years, then this course will help you on your way.
A highly skilled workforce is seen as critical in supporting high quality early years provision and so upon successful completion of the course you’ll be awarded Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). This reflects the significant role you’ll have in working with young children. EYTS is awarded by the Department of Education and the Teaching Regulation Agency.
Ordinary or Honours degree
In addition you must also:
* Have GCSE or equivalent in English, Maths and Science at grade 4 or above, or grade C if awarded under the previous GCSE grading scheme, prior to application.
* Undergo Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and health clearances.
* Currently be working with children up to the age of five in either an early years setting or in a school nursery/reception class, or as a registered child minder.
* Be able to communicate in standard spoken and written English.
* Complete a satisfactory interview.
Please see our website for full details.
Currently course fees are paid directly to the University by the Department of Education and your employer may receive up to £7,000 to support your training costs.
Please note, you won’t be eligible for student finance support from the Student Loan Company on this course.
It’s not possible to invite you onto our campus at the moment, but we don't want you to miss out on seeing what Huddersfield has to offer postgraduate students and researchers. For that reason, we'll be hosting a number of digital events where you'll be able to:
* Chat with our academics and find out more about your postgraduate options
* Find out more about postgraduate loans and funding
* Chat with current postgraduate students and find out about their experience
* Discover the support available to postgraduate students
We'd love it if you'd join us. Registration opening March 2021
