    Hi, I start BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in September... I want to go uni. But, I'm torn between doing Children's Nursing or Early Childhood Studies so I can do teaching for primary schools or in the Eary Year setting. But, I can't decide between the two. I got told I could do my degree in Children's Nursing and then a PGCE in the Primary Teaching for Early Years... As that way I have both pathways/options. Anyone know if this is true/possible?
    I wished I could do both Children's Nursing and Early Childhood Studies.
    Anyone got any advice/help?! Would be much appreciated - thank you.

    Yes, you can do a PGCE as long as you have any degree

    Have you considered looking for a joint honours degree including Education or Primary Education plus another relevant subject like Psychology for instance? Something like this would leave most doors open for you

    No I didn't know that was possible aha?🙈

    I'm basically stuck between Children's Nursing degree or Early Childhood Studies degree. I wished there was a way to do both...
    I've done Level 1 Childcare and Level 2 Childcare and I have a Award in Level 2 Babysitting. Along with a Level 2 Teacher Support and Level 2 Award in Control and prevention of infection. I'm now awaiting to do Level 3 Health and Social Care. But, I wanted to know if I do Children's Nursing as my main degree. Would I be able to do a PGCE in the Early Years Teaching sector? So that way I have both Children's Nursing and the Early Childhood as then that way I have a bit of both and a back up?! Just wasn't sure as been told so many things 😓
