Early Career Framework (ECF)

Redhill Teaching Hub is partnering with the Education Development Trust (EDT) to deliver the Early Career  Framework for our region.

The Early Career Framework underpins a statutory entitlement to a fully funded, 2-year package of structured support for early career teachers, linked to the best available research evidence.

From September 2021, new teachers will receive developmental support and training over 2 years instead of one, with additional funding available to support their time out of the classroom in the second year and a dedicated mentor. Support will also be available to mentors.

Appropriate Body

Redhill Teaching Hub is delighted to be able to provide Appropriate Body services to all schools within The Redhill Academy Trust, Minster Trust for Education and Diverse Academies Trust, with new teachers joining them from September 2021.

Providing both Early Career training and Appropriate Body Services means we can offer a unified package of structured support; reducing workload for schools and providing reassurance that they are meeting statutory requirements.

The Appropriate Body Service will ensure that, in accordance with statutory guidance:

  • Headteachers and governing bodies are aware of, and are meeting, their responsibilities with regard to monitoring, support and assessment. This includes checking that the Early Career Teacher (ECT) is receiving a personalised induction programme, has a named induction tutor/mentor and has a reduced timetable.
  • The school’s monitoring, support, assessment and guidance procedures are fair, appropriate and consistent across all schools and are embedded in good practice.

The Redhill Teaching Hub will use NQT Manager (soon to be re-named as ECT Manager) as the main administration tool. Schools will continue to have access to this for ECT registrations, assessments and all previous functions. We will use the DfE approved templates for all forms for recording information, progress and assessments.

To register your ECTs the first step is to register your school’s induction tutor.  All schools will need to register for an NQT Manager account. Current log-in details cannot be used to access the portal. Once approved the induction tutor can then log-in and add details about tutors, mentors and ECTs.
