Early Career Framework
The Alban Teaching School Hub is delighted to deliver the Full Induction Programme for the Early Career Framework.
What is the Early Career Framework?
From September 2021 the government is funding an entitlement for all early career teachers in England to access high-quality professional development for the first two years of their career to support teacher support and retention. The DfE recommends that schools complete the Full Induction Programme with their local Teaching School Hub. Please note that only the Full Induction Programme offers additional funding of 36 hours of backfill time for each ECT Mentor.
All ECTs and their respective mentors will need to complete the ECF programme for a minimum of two years, and this will be quality-assured by the Appropriate Body, who will need to be satisfied with the quality of the induction programme to grant induction to ECTs employed in any school or phase, including Early Years. Unlike the Core and School-Based induction options, the Full Induction programme does not demand any further quality assurance costs by the Appropriate Body, as it has already been quality assured by the DfE.
