School-Designed Training Programmes

The third way of ensuring that ECTs receive required ECF training
during induction is to design a training programme in school...

Schools are able to take the Early Career Framework and develop a training programme to meet the requirements of this aspect
of ECT induction.

  • Schools will have to plan programme details, as well as organise and fund the facilitation and delivery of the programme

  • Schools choosing to run self-designed training programmes will not benefit from receiving funding for the release of their Induction Mentors to attend training

  • Schools choosing to run self-designed training programmes will need to provide information about their training programme when registering NQTs, as well as reviews at the end of Years One and Two.

Please note that ECF training is an additional element of ECT induction, to be run alongside - and not replacing - the traditional support and assessment element of induction.
