University of Derby

Early Years Teacher

During the course, students work with children in early years settings or wider children's services and take responsibility for leading and managing play, care and learning. Students can complete the graduate entry, employment based pathway if they are a graduate working in the sector and require training or experience before they can demonstrate the Teachers' Standards (Early Years). Alternatively, the graduate entry, mainstream pathway is suitable for those who have a degree and would like to pursue a career working with children from birth to 5 years old.
