From September 2013 Early Years Teacher Status will be the only Government endorsed professional accreditation for graduate practitioners in Early Years. It provides you with an opportunity to have your knowledge and skills as a practitioner and leader accredited.
To achieve this you will have to demonstrate your competencies against the eight Teachers’ Standards (Early Years) and other key areas. This website will take you through each area, step by step and if you need more support ‘Early Years Teacher Status: Guide to the Standards’ will be available in November. This guide will help you get to know the Standards and assessment requirements in greater depth and will help your mentor support you.
To meet all the Standards you will need to understand the Early Years Teacher Status requirements in detail. The information here will give you an overview of all aspects of Early Years Teacher Status: the Standards, personal practice, leadership and support, reflective practice and the age range requirements.
