Before you can go forward for Early Years Teacher Status assessment, you will need to have experience in at least two settings across the birth to five age range including evidence to demonstrate the quality of your work at both settings. There is now a requirement to ‘engage with the continuum of expectations, curricula and teaching of Key Stage 1 and 2’ through a 10 day placement within Key Stage 1 (5-7 year olds) which could be undertaken prior to starting the programme.

The 2014 National Student Survey (NSS) placed our Initial Teacher Training second in London for student satisfaction.
Early Years ITT is the only teacher training focused on the birth to five year age range. This makes Early Years Teachers ideally placed to provide high quality education and care for babies and young children in the private, voluntary and independent sectors, free schools, academies and in maintained schools at the discretion of the Head Teacher. The pay and conditions for working in early education and childcare settings outside maintained schools are determined by employers at a local level.
