Sunningdale School is working with Northern Lights Teaching School Hub and Education Development Trust to support the facilitation of a Full Induction Programme for schools with ECTs as part of a national roll out.
You may already be familiar with the new framework, but just in case – the framework sets out the entitlement to support for all ECTs and underpins a new entitlement to 2 years of professional development support for new teachers at the start of their careers. The entitlement becomes statutory for all ECTs from September 2021 and schools must provide each ECT with a 2 year structured programme of support and development. The official DfE documents, resources and guidance can all be found on its website here. These include the Early Career Framework itself, an overview of the reforms around the Early Career Framework and, crucially, details of changes to statutory induction.
There are three routes through which schools can make this provision available. Sunningdale has adopted the Full Induction Programme and have chosen to work with the Northern Lights Teaching School Hub, in partnership with Education Development Trust, as we all share the enthusiasm and vision of how ultimately important it is to provide opportunities for the national programme for ECF to provide opportunities for ECT to access SEND specific provisions. Sunningdale School will contribute to the facilitation of the training to meet the training and development needs of ECTs in schools with children requiring additional educational support
If this sounds like the right provision for your ECTs and your school you can register here to select The Northern Lights Hub as your delivery partner.
Once this is complete you will need to register with the DfE which can be completed using its online portal.
