    Early Childhood Teacher help

    Thank you so much for your responses, I understand completely the points you are all making. I love children and I've always wanted to work with children in the future I just haven't fully figured out in which capacity yet. I'm aware it's no guarantee, as nothing is in life, but I was just hoping to clarify that if the job does stay on the SOL, whether either route would qualify me for that position.

    Early Childhood Teacher help

    Hi all, I understand your points completely. However, sometimes people get a lot more joy out of where they choose to live and the quality of life that comes with it rather than their chosen career. I am 100% one of those people, I don't believe any career will particularly bring my happiness it is my lifestyle and where I live that will do that. That is why I am hoping to keep my options open as much as possible. Quoll, thank you for the advice. I don't think I would financially be able to do two masters as I have already undergone a Bachelors degree. So I will put careful thought into my next step.
  3. Hi there, I have a 3year BSc Psychology degree already and I am ideally hoping to do a PGCE in Primary Education in September. Would I be able to apply as an Early Childhood teacher if I had at least a 45 day supervised placement in a classroom with children of the appropriate age whilst on my PGCE? For example in a reception class where the children are aged 4-5? Or would I be required to do the Early Years Education PGCE which covers only children aged 3-7? I am hoping to migrate to Australia but due to family circumstances cannot fully commit yet. Therefore I am apprehensive to do an Early Years PGCE as I feel it would limit my career options in England more if I have to stay, as surely primary schools would rather hire someone who is qualified to teach all years rather than just the first few years? Anyone with any experience here who could help me out would be doing me a massive favour. Thanks!!
