Early Years Education (Early Years Teacher Status) (Postgraduate Certificate)

Course Description

About this course

This course has been developed in partnership with students and employers to offer a qualification that will support working towards Early Years Teacher status. The programme is fully funded by the NCTL, for those who qualify, and bursaries are also available.

It’s particularly aimed at graduates who don’t already work in early years but who may be looking for a career move. It’s also a great option for overseas graduates who are looking to enter the teaching profession within England.

This course is offered on both a full- and part-time basis. The full-time course is a School Direct programme delivered in partnership with the Durham and Newcastle Teaching Alliance. The course is school or early years setting-led, which means you’ll spend most of your time within a designated school or early years setting.

It underpins all of the training requirements outlined by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) and has been flexibly designed to suit your needs.

This course is aimed at graduates already working or volunteering with the under-fives, or for those who wish to work in early years.

It’s ideal for students who want to boost their knowledge and skills within the early years sector or for those who aspire to become an early years teacher.
