Programme Outline

How is EYITT delivered?

There are two funded routes to Early Years Teacher Status, both of 12 months duration. Both routes require a degree on entry, as well as GCSE in English, maths and science at grade C or above.

Route 1. Graduate Entry Route (GE) – 12 months, full-time

Funded places are available, and from September 2019 the following bursaries are also available:

  • £5,000 for a graduate with a first-class degree
  • £4,000 for a graduate with a 2:1 degree
  • £2,000 for a graduate with a 2:2 degree

Route 2. Graduate Employment-based Route (GEB) – 12 months, part-time

This route is for graduates who are either:

  1. already employed in an early years setting/early years department of a school
  2. newly recruited to an early years setting to undertake Early Years Initial Teacher Training through an employment-based route

A £7,000 employer incentive is available to cover release and other costs paid in three instalments.
