The ECF has led to a radical change in how we prepare new teachers coming in to the profession. In our next set of ECF briefings we will be sharing what we have learnt from our diverse range of partner schools about how to make the ECF work effectively. From building in more time for mentoring, lesson observation, feedback, online study, using instructional coaching and changing staff timetable allocations there is a lot to consider to help ensure our ECTs and our schools reap the benefits of the ECF.
Attending our briefings on 31st Jan or 1st Feb will help you understand more about how you can best prepare your school for the ECF. Whether you are already working with us for ECF or thinking of doing so next year we hope to share insights of value to all.
