Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) (Teaching 0-5 years)

This one-year, fully-funded course will recommend you on completion for Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) — a government-endorsed accreditation to teach children aged 0-5 years. You’ll be taught and supported by highly experienced tutors, nursery practitioners and mentors who have a national reputation for the quality of their training.

Early on in your career, you will be expected to lead teaching and learning within a small team. Opportunities for progression are wide and varied. You might lead practice across a unit, setting or a chain of settings, or you might co-ordinate a multi-professional team in a children’s centre or specialise in Special Educational Needs.
