Initial Teacher Education

Early Career
Framework

The ECF forms a vital part of the DfE’s Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy (2019), which sets out to ensure that careers in teaching are attractive, rewarding and sustainable. In September 2021, this became a statutory entitlement for all ECTs.

National Professional
Qualifications

The facilitators at the Teaching School are all Primary and Secondary Senior Leaders, who consistently receive excellent feedback from participants about their specialist knowledge of the NPQs and understanding of the local context.

Continued Professional Development

CPD will be high-quality and evidence-based focusing on developing quality teaching across the hub area. It is complementary to ITT, ECF and NPQ content and underpinned by and meets the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development.
