Hello everyone I am a primary school teacher - I completed my NQT year 2009-2010 and I now job-share a Year 2 class. I am enjoying teaching this year, after a very horrible and stressful NQT year (who's isn't?!) and am finally starting to feel good at my job. However, before I got this job-share, I did supply, and I thoroughly enjoyed the days when I was sent to a reception class, nursery, or Y1 class. This was a huge surprise to me, as the youngest class I ever taught was a Year 2 class on my PGCE, and I never ever thought I would want to go into Early Years. As I am working part-time, I used today (normally a day off) to go into a local nursery to see if I still liked it. I LOVED IT!!! The children were wonderful to be around, the staff were fantastic, the classroom was beautiful, just loved every second of being there today. My question is - to anyone who could help me - if I decide to apply for jobs in Foundation Stage, would I be considered for interview, as my training qualifies me to teach children 5yrs-11yrs? My knowledge of assessment, planning etc in Foundation Stage is minimal, and although I can read up on this and talk to nursery and reception teachers at my current school, is this enough? Is there any specific training, or a conversion course I could do? I am hoping to continue gaining work experience in some more nurseries and reception classes locally before I jump into anything, but this does seem to be something worth pursuing I think. Any advice would be greatly appreciated - thank you!
