FE Colleges

The Institute of Education collaborates with local colleges of Further Education to provide Foundation Degrees working with children from birth to 11 years.

Foundation Degrees are open to anyone with two years experience of working in the care and education sectors and will allow them to expand their job opportunities and take on more responsibility. Students remain in employment while they study for the work-based learning Foundation Degree at

Basingstoke College of Technology, Berkshire College of Agriculture, Bracknell and Wokingham College or Newbury College. Successful FD graduates often progress to a full honours degree, Early Teacher Status (EYTS) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

EYTS is awarded to those early years practitioners who can demonstrate they are leading and delivering excellent practice in line with a set of national Standards.
