Study type Taught


Designed for professionals working in an early years setting, this course will enable you to become a specialist in early childhood development while gaining Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) and a recognised qualification in early years.

With endorsement from the Government, this course recognises practitioners who have the skills needed to lead high-quality early years practice. The course takes a strong practical focus and is designed to be studied alongside working in an early years setting, enabling you to continue with your current employment while you study. If you do not currently have a role in an early years setting, we’ll support you to find suitable employment.

You’ll explore concepts of leadership and management, including managing and measuring the impact of change. Contemporary and controversial issues will also be examined, to strengthen your ability to engage critically with information sources.

The course is completely funded, including £7,000 for your employer, enabling them to release you for 10% of the time and to fund supply cover.

You’ll gain experience of varied placements and a range of age groups – providing you with different routes into becoming a teacher.
