What is the Early Career Framework?

Our programme is:  

  • A two-year, fully DfE-funded Early Career Framework professional development programme for early career teachers and their mentors
  • Underpinned by current research and best practice from schools 
  • An opportunity for early career teachers to engage in regular, constructive dialogue with their peers and mentors, face-to-face and online 
  • Designed not to add unduly to your workload.

It offers a robust professional learning and development programme for early career teachers in the first two years of their careers.  The blended approach will enable early career teachers to apply new learning in their work contexts, and strengthen their professional identity, knowledge and skills over time. Their situated learning experience, and that of their mentors, is therefore not an ‘add-on’ to their workload. Rather, it is highly relevant and integral to improving the quality and efficiency of their existing teaching commitments.
