About Early Years Education with Qualified Teacher Status at Sheffield Hallam University

Our primary and early years courses provide teacher education, curriculum development and research services that focus on the foundation and primary stages of formal education. This course prepares you for teaching in early years settings including nursery, infant and primary schools. You build your understanding of early years education, and all areas of foundation and Key Stage 1 curriculum teaching. You develop your knowledge of teaching and learning in the early years, and key policies in early childhood education and care. This prepares you for teaching and management in foundation settings, children's centres and infant or primary schools. In the first year we introduce the foundation stage curriculum and you develop your basic teaching skills. You also look at key features of the Every Child Matters agenda. This is a new approach to the wellbeing and achievement of children and young people from birth to age 19. It now underpins the role of teachers in the children's workforce. During your second and third years you consider more complex features of effective teaching and current issues. For example * providing for children with special educational needs * assessment for learning * learning across the curriculum * high quality provision * partnerships in the early years. In the second year you choose an optional module, allowing you to develop an area of interest. You may wish to strengthen this interest by choosing it as a focus for your final year educational enquiry. We offer the course in partnership with local and regional children's centres and nursery and primary schools where you take your placements. The nursery and school teaching staff play an important role in your teaching and assessment.Is teaching for you?Our free three day taster courses give you all the information you need to find out if teaching is for you.
