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, and will receive a Quality Assurance visit to ensure that the programme meets the requirements for this aspect of induction..
