    Hi all

    I am interested in completing a PGCE after my degree, but I am confused with what age range to choose. I have the most experience in early years and have worked with the EYFS curriculum for years, so much I know it like the back of my hand!

    Does the 5-11 age range mean I would not be eligible to teach a reception class?

    Please help!

    You would still be able to teach reception, but someone doing 3-7 would be more suitable and preferred for it as they have studied the EYFS and KS1 in much more detail and have a deeper knowledge. I currently do Early Years (3-7) with QTS. Hope that helps
