We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Nursery Teacher Training equip postgraduates with the skills to explain and disseminate skills and learning techniques to pre-school children.
Taught PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) courses are typical for the field, though shorter Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma programmes are also available.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Early Childhood Care or Education Studies. You will also be required to have attained a Grade C or equivalent at GCSE level for English Language, Maths and Science.
Often accredited by bodies such as the National College for Teaching and Leadership, these courses train you in the theories and methods surrounding professional practise for Nursey Teaching.
Placements are a key part of these courses, providing you with practical teaching techniques, experience of child behaviours, and a vocational introduction to the current curriculum.
Some courses offer specific Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) which is suitable for careers in children's centres, schools, private nurseries or childminding facilities. Your working role may also branch into areas such as social work and community care, or even working with charities both at home or abroad.
