Early Career Framework

We are delighted to announce that the School of Education, Communication and Society has agreed to work in partnership with Capita and the University of Birmingham as a delivery partner for the full induction programme of the Early Career Framework (ECF), which will be launched in September 2021. This is an exciting new development that will enable us to work with schools to provide the highest quality support and induction for Early Career Teachers (ECT).

About the programme

  • The new Early Career Framework induction programme is a two-year funded programme consisting of support and training for ECTs and their school-based mentors.
  • The programme consists of an annual launch conference followed by a suite of half-termly in-person and remote training and support sessions for ECTs and mentors.
  • The course content draws on the Ambition Institute framework and self-study materials for ECTs.

We hope you will consider signing up to work with King’s for the delivery of the Early Career Framework induction programme. We offer:

  • A breadth and depth of experience and expertise in the training and development of teachers.
