Early Years ITT

Our EYTS programme is designed for those who wish to specialise in early childhood development, leading on education and care for children from birth to five.  EYITT is a recognised government scheme which will lead to Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), a qualification which enables you to teach children aged 0-5 years in early years settings.

This course comprises of a combination of taught sessions and interactive workshops designed to develop your understanding of how to apply your knowledge of teaching and learning across the whole Early Years Foundation Stage.  Sessions, based at Tudor Grange Primary Academy St James, are facilitated by our tutors and leading early years practitioners, who have a track record of excellence in teaching.

You will complete experience in a primary school before beginning the programme, and will experience a variety of settings during your training. It is a requirement of the course to complete 120 days of assessed practice with the 0-5 year age range, divided into 3 blocks throughout the academic year.


EYTS is a one year full-time and fully funded post-graduate course lasting from September to June, leading to the award of Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS).  The National College for Teaching and Leadership funds the course fees. You may be eligible for a bursary to study this course – for more information about funding visit Get Into Teaching.
