Valerie Jackson answers your frequently asked questions about the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS)
How does the Early Years Professional compare to other relevant qualifications?
The plan is that this award – Level 6 – will be equivalent to a qualified teacher. Early Years Professional is not a qualification, but rather a status and recognition of skills and knowledge linked to working within an early years setting.
Where are Early Years Professional candidates expected to find work once they have gained the status?
There should be work available in all children’s centres, larger nursery businesses, nursery schools and nurseries attached to primary schools.
