Early Career Framework 

The Early Career Framework (ECF) is transforming the support and development offer for teachers at the start of their career. From September 2021, all early career teachers (ECTs) will be entitled to a statutory ‘ECF induction’. This entitles early career teachers to two years of fully funded support and training, rooted in the best available research evidence. Please see our Early Career Framework Brochure for more information. 

Early Career Professional Development Programme (ECPDP) 

HISP Teaching School Hub is delighted to be a delivery partner of the Education Development Trust’s (EDTs) Early Career Professional Development Programme (ECPDP) for September 2021. The Education Development Trust is a not-for-profit organisation and one of the largest providers of professional development programmes in the UK. They have worked closely with schools and the Sheffield Institute of Education, part of Sheffield Hallam University to develop an evidence-led programme to ensure it is based on how pupils learn and what really works. To find out more about EDT please click here. A copy of the EDTs brochure for the programme can be download from the resources section below and a video introduction can be viewed here
