I'm currently training to be a TA (level 3) and my placement is in Y2.
Yesterday the head took me to one side and asked me if I'll move to t.he school nursery in the new term. She knows that it is the last place I want to go but I know that she is in a hole. I've agreed to move but am really nervous. Please tell me nice stories! 😀
I'd check with your training provider - some on my course are being told they need to be in reception or above to continue, something to do with getting enough evidence during observation, which is apparently harder at the EYFS stage, as our course is based on the national curriculum.
I did early years last year, but found I preferred the older children - I'm also doing level 3 and am with year 1, which I'm really enjoying.
