Right first thing, you do need QTS to teach in all state owned schools, free schools and private schools you dont but nearly all will go for people who have QTS as its a no brainer as they know how to teach. yes the pages says that you dont but i can guarantee that you wont get a job within the state sector without it.
both these courses wont give you QTS. you'd have to go and do a PGCE after completion of either one.
education looks around everything to do with schools and the syllabus to how people learn and develop. along with policy and such like. in 2nd and 3rd year depending on where you go, (well with my uni) you can chose modules from other courses that surround the topic of education. so you tailor your degree to what you are most interested in.
con- no QTS, three year degree with a 1 year pgce. but some might say this is a plus as you understand what is happeing within education rather than learning how to teach all the subjects teachers need to know.
Early childhood just looks at the younger child. cant say anymore than that as i havent got a clue what it includes.
by the sounds of it you need to go and look at different universities and what they offer in both courses for the best indication of what would be best for you and what you are most interested in and what age you prefer to teach.
in answer to what you can do, education studies lets you into a huge amount of jobs post degree. mentoring, tutoring, museum work and the list can go on and on depending on what you include with the modules you take.
early years at a guess would not allow you to go into anything higher than year 2. but i cant say for certain, again this is something you need to look into and figure out if you want to do it.
hope this helps, and from a bias stand, education is a much better course :P
