Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYTS) - Graduate Employment Route

University of Huddersfield School of Education and Professional Development

Part time September Other 1 year part-time

About the course

Current government reforms in education are focused on early childhood development and the importance of high quality early years provision in preparing young children for the best start in life. So if you’re aspiring to be an early years specialist and want to train to teach young children from birth to five years, then this course will help you on your way.

A highly skilled workforce is seen as critical in supporting high quality early years provision and so upon successful completion of the course you’ll be awarded Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS). This reflects the significant role you’ll have in working with young children. EYTS is awarded by the Department of Education and the Teaching Regulation Agency.
