Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT formely EYPS) - NOW RECRUITING FOR AUTUMN 2013
We are working in close partnership with a consortium of partners from across the East of England. The consortium, Early Years East, is responsible for providing training and assessment for EYITT for the whole of the East of England.
The graduate-level programme, is the only government-endorsed professional accreditation for the early years sector. It is a recognised national status equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
We will be delivering two of the four possible EYPS Pathways:
Graduate Practitioner Pathway (GPP) - Designed for graduates currently working in the sector who require a small amount of learning or experience before they can demonstrate the EYP Standards
Undergraduate Practitioner Pathway (UPP) - A current employee working in the sector with a Level 5 qualification for example
Find out more about these Pathways and the EYITT by downloading the factsheet.

The history of the programme
EYITT will take over from the EYPS this September, EYPS has already been awarded to over 8,300 early years practitioners so far and the consortium’s 490 new entrants to the programme from January will help ensure the East of England has a thorough resource of well-qualified early years practitioners ready to lead and deliver excellent practice in early years settings.
EYPS was created in 2007 in response to a national consultation on the future of the children’s workforce, which highlighted the need for further reform among those working with very young children. Since its launch the programme has been shown to have raised quality across early years education, with recent research showing that EYPs have a measurable impact on quality across an early years setting, over and above that of employing a early years / education graduate who doesn't hold the status.
