What is the Early Career Framework?
The Teaching School Hub is delighted to offer support for Early Career Teachers (ECTs) through the Provider led programme and Appropriate Body (AB) induction services.
The Hub is highly committed to ensuring that new teachers receive the best possible support, opportunities and development at the start of their career. The Hub is therefore offering a DfE approved ,fully funded programme of professional development for Early Career teachers across Lincolnshire. This programme sets out an entitlement to a new evidence-based approach over the first two years of an Early Career Teacher’s journey. In addition to this, the Hub is equally committed to ensuring that mentors have adequate training and support to conduct the role effectively. The programme is designed to build upon the Core Content Framework (CCF) experienced during the Initial Teacher Training year, prior to beginning the ECT induction.
The Early Career Framework reforms are designed to ensure that Early Career Teachers develop the skills and confidence they need in order to teach effectively. The Early Career Framework is the evidence base which underpins this new entitlement for Early Career Teachers. This framework provides the content that all Early Career Teachers should access during the first 2 years of their career. Through an approach of 'learning about and learning how to do', the five core areas of the ECF are outlined below:
• Behaviour Management
• Professional Behaviours

SUPPORTING ECT GUIDES FOR MENTORS
These guides, produced by Haili Hughes, Head of Education at Iris Connect, support mentors to help their early career teachers (ECTs) work towards the teachers' standards through applying the research model with their ECTs and getting them to think about the impact them on their practice. Furthermore, they give some top takeaways for putting a model into practice.
