Early Career Teacher

Programme

The Early Career Teacher (ECT) Programme is a comprehensive training portfolio to support all early career teachers from newly qualified to the fifth year of teaching. It builds on from Initial Teacher Training, and provides developmental opportunities for ECTs to continually improve classroom practice through a blend of face-to-face training, which can be attended in person or virtually, reading, reflection, action research and observing learning and teaching. The programme is informed by national and international research and innovative local practice to enable ECTs to show real impact in improving outcomes for young people.

WHO IS THE PROGRAMME FOR?

Any teacher within their first five years of teaching.

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

Programme content is based on the research of John Hattie, particularly Visible Learning (2009) focusing on the most successful evidenced approaches to improving student outcomes. Our approach starts with a diagnostic to ascertain development needs so that the programme provides a bespoke element to meet individual requirements. Each of our core modules are available at three levels with further specialist modules:

  • Teaching Foundations

  • Developing Teacher

  • Confident Teacher

  • Leaders of Teaching and Learning (additional set of specialist modules)

MODULES

  • Evidence-based pedagogy and planning

  • Deepening subject and curriculum knowledge and supporting pupil progression

  • Using and understanding data and assessment

  • Personal effectiveness

  • Supporting SEND and managing other adults in the classroom

  • Classroom skills, including behaviour management

  • Developing skills as a lead practitioner

DURATION

The programme commences in October and completes with a conference in July.
