4. Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) Evaluation
DfE are pleased to announce that IFF research has been appointed as the evaluation partner for the increased EYITT places element of the Early Years Education Recovery Programme. As part of this programme, EYITT was allocated additional funding for Academic Years 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024, which has meant that DfE has funded more places for these two academic years.
The evaluation will include surveys and interviews with providers and trainees. EYITT providers with an interest in this have been sent information directly. IFF will contact providers from mid-May.
If you have any questions, please contact us at eyitt.GENERALENQUIRIES@education.gov.uk

5. Special schools and alternative provision for ITT
Guidance has been published for accredited ITT providers and their partners, to support the appropriate involvement of special schools and alternative provision in ITT. The guidance also applies to pupil referral units and mainstream schools with SEN resource units.

6. Teaching Vacancies update: Direct marketing campaign to trainee teachers
The direct marketing campaign supporting trainee teachers through their job-hunting journey has been a success. Open rates from emails sent from Teaching Vacancies peaked at a high of 69% and over 6,000 trainee teachers set up a job alert.
Next October the campaign will be running again, alongside employability webinars – providers should get in touch if they would like to get involved: email@example.com
You can find Teaching Vacancies here: https://teaching-vacancies.service.gov.uk
7. Talk to us about hosting ITT school placements
We want to speak to schools who host ITT placements for trainee teachers. We would like to hear about current experiences of organising, overseeing, and recording information about school placements, and how you work with ITT providers, trainees, and mentors as part of this. Your feedback will inform potential improvements to support schools and ITT providers to organise placements for trainee teachers.
We would be very grateful if the members of staff responsible for ITT in your school, could spare an hour to speak with us.
Send Edd Dixon (Edd.DIXON@education.gov.uk) an email to express interest.
