Early Career Framework
Induction information for ECTs
What is the ECF?
It has been designed to support and retain early career teachers
It is not an assessment tool for ECTs
Independent schools can choose to follow their own design (school based) or to use free open-source materials provided by the DfE (known as the core programme). The fully funded route (FIP) is not available to independent schools
The School Based Programme
Adapt and augment existing practice, making reference to the ECF
School can use any of the core materials from any provider if they wish, ie pick and mix/in any order to assist them
The Core Programme
