Early Career

EarLy Career Framework

The Early Career Framework (ECF) has been designed to make sure early career teachers focus on learning the things that make the most difference in the classroom and their professional practice. Induction programmes will include high-quality development materials, underpinned by the ECF, which will support early career teachers to develop the essential knowledge and skills to set them up for a successful and fulfilling career in teaching. 

The ECF has been compiled by an expert advisory group with input from teachers, school leaders, academics and experts and has been independently assessed and endorsed by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). 

 The Early Career Framework (ECF) underpins an entitlement to a fully funded, two-year package of structured training and support for early career teachers linked to the best available research evidence. The package of reforms will ensure new teachers have dedicated time set aside to focus on their development, with additional funding set aside to support this. 

School leaders will have a statutory obligation to ensure that The Early Career Framework is implemented for all early career teachers from September 2021. Learners First are pleased to announce dates for a series of leadership briefings (repeated content), where you can gain an overview of the statutory requirements and CPD available, prior to the national roll out on 1st September 2021.
