From September 2021, Induction for newly trained teachers (Early Career Teachers or ECT’s) is changing. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-career-framework-reforms-overview/early-career-framework-reforms-overview
Schools have three options for meeting this new entitlement; use a provider such as a Teaching School Hub, deliver their own training using DfE resources, or write their own courses.
We believe that using Kent Teaching School Hub for your ECF CPD programme is the best option for most schools because:
- The full CPD programme and mentor training is fully funded, so free of charge to schools.
- Schools can be confident that their ECT’s have access to a rich, high quality curriculum and learning opportunities. We have partnered with Ambition, who provide an exceptionally well sequenced and resourced curriculum. We think that it is the best of the six national providers.
- Confidence that your school is fulfilling the new statutory to provide ECF CPD from September 2021.
- The programme is a blend of flexible self-study and face-to-face learning opportunities, supported by your KTSH trained school mentor.
- AB service costs using KTSH are significantly reduced at £100 per year. Schools delivering and developing their own ECF CPD programme will need to pay their AB for the increased costs associated with quality assuring the full entitlement.
- For smaller schools we can help reduce the leadership workload for mentoring and support of the ECF, by providing access to a visiting mentor.
