The Early Career Framework (ECF) is a statutory two-year package of high-quality professional development (training, support, and resources) for schools with Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)*
Part of the Department for Education’s Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy, the ECF supports Early Career Teachers (and their Mentors) in the first two years of teaching.
Kingsbridge Teaching School Hub (part of Education South West) and Colyton Teaching School Hubs will be working with Teach First to create an area-wide partnership that supports schools across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.
The statutory assessment of Early Career Teachers is also changing to two-years to correspond to the Early Career Framework and SWIFT will be providing this support through its Appropriate Body service.
