A number have taken up work as advisers to local and national government and as researchers on early childhood programmes.
Graduates can also be found working in nurseries, early years settings, primary schools, as leaders and managers and as researchers, lecturers and teacher educators in higher education and in educational services outside schools such as museums, publishing or children's support services.
