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.
The framework of this course is geared towards enhancing your future employability within the Early Years sector and has been developed in collaboration with students and employers to provide a qualification that will survive any changes in government policy.
As such, you’ll leave as a flexible, highly employable graduate, equipped with the knowledge and skills you need for the next step in your career and you’ll be able to demonstrate your extensive work-based experience and practice.
As well as being a great early years practitioner, you’ll also have a really solid knowledge and critical awareness of the latest legislation, new insights, current problems and contemporary issues at the forefront of early years care and education.
