Induction information for Coordinators, Tutors & Mentors

As an Induction Coordinator, Tutor or Mentor you will be responsible for monitoring and supporting your Early Career Teacher (ECT) through their induction.

To start with, please make sure you’re up to date with the latest version of the Statutory Guidance on Induction as revised in March 2021, and the Teachers’ Standards.

Once underway, there are certain key things you need to ensure you do over the induction period:

  • You need to register your ECT before induction may begin;
  • You need to have an understanding of the process, the Early Career Framework (ECF), and the Teachers’ Standards;
  • You need to organise and implement an individualised programme of support for your ECT, and make them aware of their responsibilities in the process

The statutory guidance says you must have time to undertake this role (we’d recommend a minimum of one period per week, per ECT) and you should be trained to do it.

Further guidance and paperwork is located in the resources section of NQT Manager.

NQTs who began induction prior to September 2021 (legacy NQTs) will continue on the one year induction programme. All legacy paperwork is located in the resources section of NQT Manager.
