Development Initiative - Early Career Framework (ECF)

The first years of a teacher's career are vitally important for professional development. The best time to develop good habits and effective teaching strategies is at the start of a new career in the classroom. The Early Career Framework (ECF) provides a fully-funded structured package of training and support for all NQTs (or Early Career Teachers) and their in-school mentors from September 2021, with an aim of retaining talent within schools for the long-term.

Schools now have an important choice to make – the lead training provider they partner with to support their next generation of teachers.

As one of Strictly Education’s trusted partners, Best Practice Network - an award-winning training provider rated “exceptional” by the Department for Education - is a highly recommended option for introducing and delivering the Early Career Framework to your school’s NQTs. Their ECF programme is delivered flexibly and considers the time constraints of an Early Career. Best Practice Network’s Early Careers Framework includes:

  • Face-to-face and online webinars with leading experts
  • Regular meetings with an in-school mentor
  • Self-study featuring rich multimedia content including videos, practical tasks and discussion activities
  • Exceptional support from their award-winning team
