ECTs

As teachers, we recognise that the first few years of teaching can be challenging, and difficult to find the right balance in a job that requires so much commitment. But we also know how joyous this job can be, and how much reward a career in teaching can bring. You will find that advice and support from the Hub comes with a healthy dose of real-life experience and an active desire to help wherever possible.

On this page you will find links to training materials, webinars and events. But most importantly, you will find a list of all the people at the Hub who are involved in your training. They are here to support you and have been carefully chosen as they each bring something distinct to our offer.

Year 1 - April 2023 ECTs

First-year ECTs, who started their training in April 2024.

For our April 2023 cohort, training sessions will revisit the 2 Blocks you have recently completed. This is because this training is designed for our large September 2024 cohort. Attendance at this training will help to reinforce knowledge, and offer you a better opportunity for peer to peer support and networking than if we were to run small/online April 23 training sessions.

Here to support you 

We want all our ECTs to be successful and thrive in their first teaching posts. To encourage this, we have carefully selected facilitators and trainers, all of whom are experienced teachers and/or school leaders who bring a wealth of experience to their ECF role.

Our aim is to provide a range of opportunities for our ECTs to build relationships with the Hub staff involved in their training, not just through the training sessions but also through our regular drop-in events and our online webinars. The Hub is here to provide support, guidance and encouragement; a regional touchpoint for all and not just a training provider.
