Course summary

Course Overview

This postgraduate Master's level programme supports those currently working in the early years sector in meeting the Teachers’ Standards (Early Years) and achieving Early Years Teacher Status.

This one year, fully funded, course is designed for graduate practitioners working in the foundation stage within pre-school settings and schools that offer the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Funding of £14,000 is available, this covers course fees of up to £7,000. The remaining £7,000 is a contribution to the costs incurred by your employer.

The course runs from September to July and you will spend the majority of your time in your own place of work. Over the year you will develop your knowledge and skills in teaching competently and leading practice across the 0 – 5 age range. You will also be required to gain an understanding of the continuum of education.

The programme is taught by experienced and enthusiastic tutors, in partnership with mentors and teachers in local settings and schools who will support you throughout the year. To meet EYITT requirements you will also spend: 15 days engaged in University based training, a minimum of 4 weeks in a contrasting setting, 10 days in a school engaging with the educational continuum in key stage 1 and 2.

By the end of the course, you will be a reflective, early years teacher equipped to meet the needs of children aged 0 - 5; enhance the quality of early years education and continue your professional learning throughout your career. It is taught at master’s level which will allow you to gain up to 60 credits towards a master’s qualification in the future.

It is our mission to empower trainees, through the development of knowledge, understanding and critical reflection, to become change agents who work effectively with setting communities and beyond to enhance children’s daily experiences. Subsequently, they enable children to make good progress and improve social and academic outcomes in the short and long term.
