Has anyone got into teaching by doing an Early Childhood Studies Degree?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by CaraWilson, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. Had my interview for my top choice today and didn't meet the grades for written English due to some absolutely ridiculous guidlines. I applied for Primary Education but they've offered me a place for Early Childhood Studies. They told me that it's still an excellent route into teaching but I have my doubts as there is no placement and no prep for becoming a teacher.
    I just wanted to know whether anyone took the same route as what I may have to do and whether they found it more difficult because they aren't getting as much classroom experience as if you did a teaching specific degree.

    Feedback is much appreciated!
