EYPS Enrolment Form v11 by dFbSGbF


									                     Requirements for EYPS applicants
                                (Please read this page carefully)

   A full degree in any subject* (or an Early Years related Foundation Degree that must be
    topped up to a full degree by the end of the course).

   GCSEs at grade C or above in English and maths**

   An enhanced CRB check (We will send CRB forms out to all applicants for the Fulltime
    Pathway, so please return these urgently. For those applying to part-time Pathways, your
    manager must complete the relevant details on p4)

   If applying for a work-based Pathway: you must currently be working at an eligible setting.
    Unfortunately if you are employed by a maintained school you are not eligible, unless you
    are also employed for at least 50% of your time by a Children’s Centre.

   If applying for the Full Training Pathway: you must not currently be in full-time work and
    must be able to commit a minimum of four days per week to EYPS studies.

   Communicating effectively. You must show that you can read effectively and are able to
    communicate clearly and accurately in spoken and written English.

    * We are not able to accept equivalent level qualifications that are not full degrees.

    ** Level 2 Adult Literacy/Numeracy certificates are insufficient on this occasion. Please contact us to
    check whether we are able to accept your GCSE equivalents. If you are not currently able to provide
    evidence of these GCSEs, we will be unable to accept you onto the Short Pathway.
                                                 Application guidelines
   1. Please complete all sections of the application form fully

   2. If completing the form by hand, please write clearly in capital letters

   3. You must include copies of your degree, maths and English certificates with the completed
      enrolment form. Without evidence of your degree as a minimum, we will be unable to process
      your application.

   4. If you gained your qualifications outside of the UK, you must include confirmation from NARIC
      that they are accepted equivalents (www.naric.org.uk).

   5. If you’re in the UK on a visa, please enclose a copy of your documentation.

   6. It is essential that you have an e-mail address that you check regularly. Please ensure that
       the address you supply is accurate.

   7. Places for each intake will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Any missing
       information or evidence of qualifications will delay the processing of your application and may
       result in your place being released.

   8. If applying for a part-time Pathway, you will be sent a written exercise to complete and return.
       Should you meet the initial entry requirements, you will need to have a short interview with a
       tutor to confirm your suitability for the course and for them to recommend the most suitable
       training Pathway for you.

Information for candidates’ Setting Manager/Line Manager

Please pass this page to your setting manager to read and complete. This only applies to
candidates currently employed in a childcare setting. (All self employed candidates or those
choosing the Full Pathway must be CRB checked through Tribal before beginning any placements)

Supply cover funding is available to the employers of candidates working in eligible private, voluntary and
independent early years settings.

The process to achieve EYPS is both demanding and time consuming and it is essential that all funding
provided to your setting is used to support the candidate in attending face to face sessions, study, and
preparing for and completing the final assessment. Experience with previous candidates has shown positive
benefits where setting managers gave direct support and facilitated candidates’ engagement in setting based
aspects of the programme.

EYPS is all about developing and acknowledging leadership and best practice in early years. It is therefore
essential that candidates embarking upon a pathway have the opportunities to lead others and be agents of
change in their own settings. Their final assessment will require them to show evidence of leading and
supporting others across the whole of the 0 to 5 age range.

We recommend that candidates are released from their duties for at least one day (or two half days) to
complete written work they need to submit to their assessor. Candidates may also need release time to gain
further experience with a particular age group in other settings.

         - Short EPD: 6 months - £1000 provided to setting for supply cover
         - Long EPD: 15 months - £4000 provided to setting for supply cover

If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the EYPS office on 0117 983 8800

you do within your setting and tick the box that best fits your own situation. Our tutors will then recommend the
most suitable Pathway for you once an interview has taken place.

Identifying your pathway:

    Short EPD Pathway            I meet all the requirements and through my experience have most ticks in column
                                 1 (Often) or 2 (Sometimes) and few ticks in column 3 (Never)
    Long EPD Pathway             I do not meet requirement C but have a full level 5 qualification, and through my
                                 experience have most ticks in column 1 (Often) or 2 (Sometimes) and few ticks in
                                 column 3 (Never)
    Full-time Pathway            I have a degree but I have little or no experience of working in this sector, and I
                                 have very few or no ticks in any of the columns.
