25 October 2017

We are considering a range of approaches to increasing the number of graduates employed in the early years’ sector, and work is still underway. We will engage the sector in exploring ways to target support where it is most needed. We continue to support graduates into the sector through our funding of the Early Years Initial Teacher Training programme, including bursaries and employer incentives.
