With an early childhood qualification you may find yourself attractive to employers in a range of occupations - you could for example try for a job as an education officer at the museum, children's store worker or manager, children's swimming instructor, research assistant, nanny or au pair, and apply to work for an airline as a cabin crew member or with the police.
If you return to study and undertake a post-graduate qualification you could aim for other positions in education such as lecturer at a Polytechnic or University, a researcher, an education review officer, a policy advisor, an early childhood consultant, a special education advisor ... many more different doors may open to you depending upon what you choose to specialise in for your post-graduate studies.
For those wanting to find work in an early childhood service, such as a kindergarten or childcare centre here is some great advice and tips for finding a job and getting it.
