Could some1 b of assistance.
NB:What level is my degree qualification.

Level 6 but I hope it wasn't written the same as the post!
Job wise whatever you can find, you have as much chance as anyone else. The qualification side either puts people off thinking you want lots of money or think its great as you "should" be quite knowledgeable. The lack of practical hands on experience is a downer though. I'm intrigued why you did the qualification without any direction of where you wanted to go, and whether the degree would financially repay itself. On a personal level degrees almost usually repay with professional development but doesn't always transfer well to a job! That's a lot of money to invest with no direction.

While your degree is a level 6 qualification, thwere are no level 6 jobs that you can do with just the degree.
You can do teacher training and get a job as a teacher or undertake Early years professional status and maybe get a job as an eyp.
Or you can get a job as a nursery practitioner and the salary is minimum wage up, depending on your experience.

i would offer you a basic nursery nurser job, experience os the pmost important thing in early years id take it over a degree any day.

How and where do I get the Early years proffessional status?

College, but even as EYP you can expect minimum wage upwards as there is no pay scales for Early Years
