Early Careers Framework (ECF)

The Early Career Framework (ECF) reforms entitle all early career teachers to a fully funded, two-year package of structured training and support linked to the best available research evidence.

The ECF provides an entitlement to a two-year structured and evidence-informed package of support for all new teachers at the start of their careers.

Please find the Department of Education’s overview of the Early Career Framework Reforms here.

Please note that the DfE has announced (as a part of the Recovery Programme) further funding to ensure that places will be available for schools who wish their ECTs to be on the Full Induction Programme.

We are working with the Ambition Institute to deliver the ECF programme. Details of the Ambition Institute Programme can be found here.

Ambition ECF Module Flexibility

Your feedback is extremely important to us. There have been a few schools who have identified that in terms of their ECTs they would like more flexibility. As a result, the NWLTSH have negotiated with Ambition a second option. This will allow schools, if they choose, to access all the modules across the 2 year Induction Programme now! Click here for more information.
