Early Career Framework and NQT Induction

Information about ECF and changes to induction

Bradford for Teaching is holding a webinar in June at which each of the chosen providers of materials and support for the Early Career Framework - Ambition, Teach First, Education Development Trust and UCL Institute of Education - will present in order to explain their offer and give schools a chance to ask questions and see in more detail what is in each programme.

Appropriate Body update on NQT induction (updated 13/01/2020)

  1. There will be no changes to statutory induction until 2021, so during the roll out, there will be no change for the end of the NQTs' induction – one year.

  2. As NQTs in 2020-21 in eligible schools which opt-in to the early roll out programme, NQTs will have access to the Early Career Framework and its supporting materials through the nationally appointed curricula and training providers.

  3. The second year 5% additional support will first be available to teachers following successful induction in 2021, in Bradford schools which opt-in to the early roll out programme.

  4. As we change from one set of induction regulations to another, there is, as yet, no information on how long the induction will be for part-time, late starters, maternity return teachers etc who begin prior to September 2021 and who will run on post the new regulations. We will continue to monitor this and ask DfE when appropriate.

  5. Statutory Guidance for Induction will change once it has gone through parliament prior to the national 2021 launch. Schools using City of Bradford MDC as the Appropriate Body (AB) will be updated via NQT Manager and we will also ensure that information is available on BSO for those schools which are not using us.

  6. Schools not using Bradford as the AB might need to check with their own AB to see how the changes will be advertised and supported.

  7. Further information can be found at this link.

If an NQT has QTLS then they are exempt from induction, as their qualification is recognised as QTS equivalent as long as they are still members of the Society for Education and Training (SET) from whom further details can be sought.
