Does anyone have any views on this topic. Studying this does NOT mean receiving more income. My head did not even know what it was! I think they are telling people in nurseries that this is the way to promotions etc but you have to have a degree to do this, so why would you opt to do this and not QTS? It seems to me that when people have this they do not get paid any more. How many jobs have you seen with this and a good salary? Recently I asked for more info about a manager's job in a nursery - have all relevant qualifications - am a teacher!!! and spent years in nursery, childminding, outstanding ofsted etc and they refused to tell me the salary and asked if I had EYPS. They are taking advantage of people. I have replied that I would like to know the salary BEFORE applying!!! What does everyone else think?
