Funding for the ECF

The Department for Education is funding all training, at no cost to schools.

From September 2021, schools need to provide all new teachers with developmental support and training over 2 years. 

All state funded schools offering statutory induction receive additional funding to deliver the ECF. Careful registration on the DfE portal will secure this funding which schools will receive as part of their core funding on completion of the programme. 

The funding covers:

- 5% off timetable in the second year of induction for all early career teachers to undertake induction activities including training and mentoring.

- Funding for mentors to carry out training with early career teachers in the second year of induction - this is based on 20 hours of mentoring across the academic year.

More information about funding for the ECF can be found on the GOV.UK website or the EDT website.



Guided instructions as to how to register your ECTs and mentors can be found on this page.

If you need any help registering your ECTs, mentors or induction tutors please contact us via email or phone - we are happy to help!

The DfE’s ‘Manage training for ECTs’ page  provides information on registering new ECTs/mentors, withdrawing or changing your registration details.
