Typical employers of nursery and early years teachers
Early years teachers can be employed in any early years setting, whether state-maintained, voluntary or private, including nursery, infant and primary schools.
Teaching vacancies are advertised in local authority jobs lists and by publications such as the Times Educational Supplement and Nursery World.
Qualifications and training required
Anyone wishing to become a nursery teacher in England must gain early years teacher status (EYTS). You can obtain this by taking an early years initial teacher training (EYITT) course. There are grants and bursaries available to cover the costs of postgraduate teacher training. It's advisable to apply in good time for teacher training places through UCAS Teacher Training, ideally in the autumn term of the final year of your degree.
Our advice on careers in teaching and education covers teacher training routes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in more depth and includes more detailed information about funding and bursaries as well as advice on applications and interviews for teacher training.
Graduates can apply for a PGCE or PGDE (Postgraduate or Professional Graduate Certificate or Diploma in Education) course with an early years specialism. Alternatively, they could apply for a SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training) programme. The Teach First and School Direct programmes also cover early years education.
Graduates can also take a graduate employment-based route to qualifying if they are working in an early years settting and need further training.
It is also possible to do an undergraduate degree that leads to EYTS, usually a bachelor of education (BEd) or a bachelor of arts/science (BA/BSc) with qualified teacher status (QTS). These courses typically take three or four years full-time and tuition fee loans are available to help with costs.
There is also an assessment-only route for graduates who also have a substantial amount of experience working with children from birth to age five and who do not need further training.
Graduates applying for early years teacher training must have GCSEs (at least grade C/4) or equivalent in English, maths and science, and pass professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy. A science or technology background may be useful, as can extra skills such as music, arts and crafts. Previous experience of working with children is usually essential.
