I wonder how much trining we will need to do though to make the EYPS a QTS qualification, as she talks about EYPS having a chance to upgrade to qualified teacher status, I have just done the degree, BA and EYPS......oh no not more study!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we go again!!!!

My heart sank when reading the bit about moving EYP's to QTS....I feel like i have been lead up the garden path.....again!!

 

She seems to derride current level 3 full and relevant qualifications as not fit for purpose, and yet suggests that they remain full and relevant under a "granfathered in "approach, and yet us poor sods who seemingly wasted our time doing EYPS are not offered the same favour. I am absolutely livid.

I have QTS already as a KS2 teacher - Im due to start my EYPS in September. So I wonder if this means Ill have to jump through yet another hoop and end up with a second QTS award - is this possible even - surely once you have QTS then thats it -errggghhhh! Head spinning once again!

I think only those that want to teach in a school will upgrade from EYPS to the new Early Years Teacher qualification. There will be no additional salary or incentive for pre-school leaders to do it, as level 3 is all that is required under the new framework. Disappointed that the goal post has changed from having a graduate leader in every full day care provision now, having studied very hard for EYPS. :angry:

I do think it's a good idea to have maths & English level 2 - I wonder though if there will be funded courses so that existing staff can get up to this level? If it's important for new entrants, surely it's important for those already working with children.

We were told at college yesterday that the Government has reinstated the funding to allow our childcare practitioners to gain their maths and english alongside their degree. This used to be free, but funding was withdrawn which obviously has impacted on their ability to go on to EYPS/QTS.

 

There was some query as to whether this was available to all practitioners, or just up to 24 years of age, so I'll be watching this with interest!

As I read it she seemed to be addressing the change over issue re qualifications to say that full and relevant would be according to the regulations in place at the time of completing your qualifications vs what is required now, until the new regs filter through? E.g she talks about people who did the cert ed being awarded QTS after it was phased out.

 

Re QTS it is awarded when a set of standards are achieved after a years induction which is a pass or fail situation, and if you fail you are not awarded QTS so can't teach in maintained schools after that. If you have QTS you have it - you would be a teacher regardless of other qualifications you take as far as I am aware. You can't be given it twice!

 

It's all very well being a specialist in an age range, but teachers pay and conditions require you to teach any age group at the direction of the HT, so even as a trained 3 - 7 years teacher I have taught across the primary age range.
