Registration Process 

Schools are now required to register their ECT with the following: 

  • Appropriate Body - all schools are required to register with an Appropriate Body in order for statutory induction to be recognised with the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA). Information on how to register with HISP Appropriate Body is below. 

  • DfE Online Service - all schools are required to provide information regarding their Induction Tutor(s), Mentor(s) and ECT(s) as well as the chosen ECF-based training programme the school will be using. The DfE Online Service can be accessed via this link (if you have any problems in accessing the service please email

  • ECF Lead Provider - this is only required for schools choosing to use a DfE-funded training programme delivered by a Lead Provider. Schools opting to use DfE-accredited materials to deliver their own ECF-based training programme or designing and delivering their own ECF-based training programme do not need to register with a Lead Provider. Further information on accessing the DfE-funded training programme through HISP Teaching School Hub is here
