I'm planning to become an Early Years Educator and have just turned down a place on a PGCE Primary Education - Early Years course. I'm not interested in becoming a Primary School teacher but DO want a qualification close to PGCE status. This is because I'm planning to eventually immegrate to New Zeland and I know a PGCE is a recognised qualification. However, in the meantime, being a Primary School teacher in England looks awful and I'd like to keep my mental health by keeping the age range down to 0-5 and teaching Early Years.
SO. As theres no such thing as an Early Years PGCE, I have narrowed down my choices to: Early Years Education with EYTS Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCert) OR an EYITT. Neither offer QTS which is fine (dont need it for NZ) The PGCert looks closer to a masters... Any one know which is better for career prospects etc?
PGCert or EYITT
