The current list of accredited providers of early years initial teacher training (EYITT) in England is published here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-initial-teacher-training-itt-providers-and-school-direct-early-years-lead-organisations/early-years-initial-teacher-training-itt-providers-and-school-direct-lead-organisations.

EYITT providers are listed by region and information is given on which of the training routes they offer; all of which lead to early year’s teacher status (EYTS) upon successful completion. The four routes to EYTS are graduate entry, graduate employment-based, undergraduate, and assessment only.

Additionally there are courses provided at levels 2 and 3 in early years education and care. In the year 2016/17, 186 providers delivered level 2 and 952 providers delivered level 3.
