What are the Benefits of Early Years Initial Teacher Training?


The Government is committed to raising the quality of early years provision by encouraging graduate leadership. Research has shown that the quality of provision is higher in settings that employ more graduate trained staff.

Early Years ITT is the only teacher training focussed on the birth to five age range. To be awarded Early Years Teacher Status, trainees must meet robust standards designed specifically for high-quality work with this age group. This makes Early Years Teachers ideally placed to fulfil the needs of employers for high-quality education and care for babies and young children. The pay and conditions for working in early education and childcare settings outside maintained schools are determined by employers at a local level.
