Northern Lights Teaching School Hub are partnered with Education Development Trust to deliver the Early Career Professional Development Programme across the North-East Region as part of the National Roll-out of the Early Career Framework.
This two-year programme provides teachers with the essential specialist support they need to improve their practice and build confidence following their Initial Teacher Training. It will arm early career teachers with skills they can use in the classroom straight away and offer the structured support needed to help them be the best teachers they can be. Mentors will follow a pathway of training with us to support them in delivering the ECF to their ECT in school.
The Early Career Framework sets out an entitlement of support for all Early Career Teachers (ECTs) and underpins a new entitlement for 2 years of professional development designed to support new teachers in developing their practice at the start of their careers. It sets out what early career teachers are entitled “to learn about” and “learn how to do” when in their first years of teaching. Following the early roll out across regions of the UK in 2020-21, this entitlement becomes statutory for all early career teachers from September 2021.
All of the official DfE’s documents, resources and guidance can all be found on their website here. These include the Early Career Framework itself, an overview of the reforms around the Early Career Framework, and, crucially, details of changes to statutory induction that will apply from September 2021.
From September 2021, statutory induction arrangements changed These new arrangements replaced current induction requirements. The term ‘Early Career Teacher’ is now being used where previously we may have referred to a ‘Newly Qualified Teacher’.
