To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 22 March 2018 to Question 132609 on Pre-school Education: Teachers, which nursery providers have received funding to help support trainees on the Graduate Employment Based route for early years initial teacher training; how much funding each of those providers have received; and in which local authority area those providers are based.

In the most recent academic year where data is available (2016/17), 460 trainees undertook Early Years Initial Teacher Training (ITT) on the Graduate Employment Based route at accredited providers across England.

A total of £3,220,000 was allocated to ITT providers to fund the employer incentive of £7,000 per trainee. It is the responsibility of the ITT provider to pass this on to their respective nursery providers therefore the Department for Education does not directly hold the details of individual nursery providers and the funding they received.
