Hope Sentamu Learning Trust, Pathfinder and All Saints RC School have the exciting opportunity to deliver a one-year programme for the Early Career Framework across our region in September 2020. Working in partnership with Ambition Institute, one of the DfE approved providers, this will gain valuable support for our NQTs and their Mentors a year before National Roll-Out in 2021.

The Early Career Framework (ECF) is the most significant reform to the teaching profession in a generation, with the potential to transform the skills and working lives of our teacher workforce. It delivers a fully funded, high-quality, evidence-informed package of support for NQTs and their mentors. This involves lengthening induction for Early Career Teachers to two years, increasing their entitlement to support and training and specifying key content to be covered during induction. It recognises the integral role of the mentor in ECTs’ development and places real emphasis on supporting and training them.
There is a carefully designed combination of virtual peer-learning groups, expert-led webinars, weekly video tutorials and self-study materials. All of this is supported by an accessible online platform which has been designed specifically to improve teaching, support mentoring and make the ECF easy to implement in schools.
Ambition Institute colleagues were part of the Expert Advisory Panel that helped develop the Early Career Framework. They are the only provider to have worked on two pilot projects, funded by the Education Endowment Foundation. This programme builds on their already established Early Career Teacher programme, ensuring their ECF resources have been tried and tested in schools. They are perfectly placed to support schools, NQTs and Mentors to make the most of this valuable and impactful opportunity.
