The Early Years Educator or EYE qualification (RQF Level 3) is widely recognised and will enable you to be counted as a qualified member of staff in UK early years settings so is a great way to enhance your career prospects.
Who is the course for?
The qualification is already incorporated into all our AMI Diploma 3-6 training options but we are delighted to be able to now offer this course to any AMI Diploma 0-3 graduate (irrespective of where they studied).
What will the course qualify me for?
The Early Years Educator (EYE) qualification, awarded by Innovate Awarding, entitles the holder to be included in the ratios of staff to children for delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in an Early Years setting in the UK. Many settings will look for this qualification, but you will also need to have the right to work in the UK.

How will I study?
The course is in a blended format. It takes place on an online learning platform where you can study at your own pace and in your own time, completing the course within a period of 12 months.
In addition, you will need to undertake a placement/ employment in an early years environment where there is an AMI-trained mentor to do a placement assessment. The length of the placement is flexible, but it needs to be long enough to complete the required assignments. The student will need to organise the placement or it could be undertaken in their current workplace.
Do you accept students from outside the UK?
The course can be taken from anywhere in the world.
Course fee: £300 which will cover all costs including an assessor fee.
You can start this online course at any time but must complete it within 12 months, including the online and in-person practice components.
