Increased recognition of the importance of quality early years provision has seen a recent policy focus on the sector. Our course reflects the resulting high demand for well-trained professional practitioners, and is tailored to prepare you for the employment market.
Employment options following graduation are varied. You may decide to focus on community, social or family support work, choosing professions such as an early years practitioner in the private, health or school sector, a parent support worker or a professional supporting young children with additional needs and their families. You could also apply the skills you learn to other areas of the public and private sector.
In addition, you may wish to choose a pathway to further study and training. Opportunities include programmes such as a Masters degree, Postgraduate Certificate in Education or Graduate Teacher Programme. You could also obtain Early Years Teacher Status through a range of professional EYITT training pathways available at the University of Hull.
