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

Course Description

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

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 National College for Teaching and Leadership (gov.uk/government/organisations/national-college-for-teaching-and-leadership) on behalf of the Department of Education.

You'll have the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of early childhood; looking at the role of play, considering different curriculum models and examining the impact of early childhood research and theories on current government perspectives and policies. We work in partnership with a strong network of providers to deliver EYTS training and your placement forms a key element of your course. Your placement can provide you with opportunities to enhance your learning and to develop the skills that employers are looking for.

You'll be taught by an outstanding team of teachers; in fact we've been ranked top 5 in the Guardian Guide for Education for the sixth year running. You'll also have access to our extensive professional and academic network which feeds directly into course design and delivery and to excellent facilities and specialist equipment.
