What is the early career framework?

The early career framework (ECF) has been designed to make sure early career teachers focus on learning the things that make the most difference in the classroom and their professional practice.

The core induction programmes include high-quality development materials, underpinned by the ECF, which will support early career teachers to develop the essential knowledge and skills to set them up for a successful and fulfilling career in teaching.

The Downland Alliance is a delivery partner for the Teaching School Hub Berkshire’s primary early career framework programme for ECTs. developed by UCL. St Bartholomew’s School is the secondary partner.

The programme draws upon the theory and practice in the ECF to combine practical activity and inquiry. It targets both ‘practical fluency’ – the capacity to deploy a range of teacher practices confidently and skillfully – and the wider knowledge, experience and beliefs required to make use of these practices in real schools, with real pupils and with their outcomes in mind.

There is further information on the reforms which have taken place here.
