ECF CPD Support Package (NQT and RQT’s)
The CPD is based upon a bespoke menu to choose from underpinned by the ECF, reflections and evaluations from previous years’ cohort. These sessions are suitable for an Early Careers Teacher (ECT) in both their first and second year of their teaching career. The sessions online will be accompanied with an opportunity to submit questions both before and during the session and will be followed up with further reading to allow delegates to enhance their learning. Face to face sessions are delivered by providers in schools across the county to enable NQTs, and others that have booked onto training, to visit other schools to share good practice and glean ideas from settings different to their own. There will be ‘teaching takeaways’ set for those trainees who wish to develop the learning further and embed the training into their own practice. The ‘teaching takeaways’ will be revisited at future sessions where delegates can share their success and voice any challenges they faced with the group so as to arrive at possible solutions together. There will be a named contact from the Appropriate Body at all sessions who will be on hand to answer any questions surrounding statutory induction. We are passionate about supporting our both our NQTs and RQTS which we will call our Early Career Teachers (ECTs) so this year we have adapted our NQT support package to incorporate the areas outlined in the Early Career Framework (ECF) that is due to begin early rollout in opportunity areas in September 2020. National rollout will take place from September 2021 and will include a 2-year development support programme for all NQTs in England. This will affect NQTs who will start their induction from September 2021. All of our CPD sessions will incorporate the standards as set out in the ECF.
