Dealing with the workload

Early Career Support Organisations

ECF Induction Programme

Early Career Framework – Core Induction Programme
Core Induction Programme. The first few years of teaching can be tough. This year has been uniquely challenging, with virtually all early career teachers starting this autumn having had a disrupted initial teacher training (ITT) experience, making it more important than ever that those starting their careers receive quality support.
