Last year the department conducted an internal policy review of the early years initial teacher training (EYITT) routes. Following the policy review we made the decision to close the School Direct EYITT route. This particular route was delivered as a pilot but did not attract sufficient interest from potential applicants to be viable in the long term. However, we continue to provide alternative EYITT routes for graduates and undergraduates.
