Footnotes

  1. The number of providers shown relates to the count of children benefiting. If children split their funded early entitlement across more than one private, voluntary or independent provider, they are only counted once at the provider where they spend the majority of their time.
  2. Before using this table please check the methodology section for important information such as definitions, limitations and caveats about the data that may not be included in these footnotes.
  3. Graduate statuses covers Early Years Professional Status (EYPS), Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). EYPS was a professional accreditation endorsed by government for graduates who demonstrated that they met the requirements of the EYPS standards. The standards focused on high quality practice with the birth to five age range. The EYPS training programme was closed to new entrants in September 2013 and was replaced by the EYTS programme. EYTS is a professional accreditation endorsed by government for graduates who have demonstrated that they meet the requirements of the Teachers' Standards (Early Years). The standards focus on high quality practice with the birth to five age range. This status was introduced in September 2013. QTS is the recognised level of qualification for teachers in most schools. Staff may have followed different routes to achieve this status including the successful completion of an approved course of initial teacher training. Those with QTS will have demonstrated that they meet the requirements of the Teacher Standards.
  4. 2018 data excludes Middlesbrough and Gloucestershire local authorities who did not return data on staff qualifications. 2019 level 2 and level 3 data excludes Shropshire local authority who did not return data on staff with full and relevant level 2 and level 3 qualifications. 2019 graduate statuses data excludes Wandsworth local authority's data on EYPS, EYTS and QTS staff qualifications due to data quality issues. 2020 data excludes Shropshire and Gloucestershire local authorities due to data quality issues.
