Early Careers Framework

Early Careers Framework

From September 2021 Barnsley and Doncaster Teaching School Hub and Selby and Wakefield Teaching School Hub will be working with UCL on the National Rollout of the ECF. 

We are delighted to partner with UCL Institute of Education offering a robust professional learning and development pathway for early career teachers and mentors in Barnsley, Doncaster, Selby and Wakefield. Welcome to our programme for early career teachers in partnership with UCL Institute of Education.

Their Full Induction Programme is free for schools and attracts additional funding to release mentors for training, above the £2,100 funding. UCL Institute worked highly successfully on the Early Rollout of the Early Careers Framework (ECF), ensuring their ECF resources have been tried and tested in schools.

Our strategic partner, Doncaster Research School, contributed to the design and delivery of the programme, which means that all schools will benefit from their considerable learning and expertise, along with the substantial experience of ECF early rollout and expansion across our Hub consortia

NQT Appropriate Body

Delta TSA (Rowena Academy) will continue to be the Delta Appropriate Body until September.

From September 2021 Barnsley and Doncaster, Selby and Wakefield Teaching School Hubs (Grange Lane Academy) will become the Appropriate Body for the hub areas. 

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of Early Career Teachers and an ECT cannot start their induction until their Appropriate Body has been agreed. As an AB, Barnsley and Doncaster, Selby and Wakefield Teaching School Hubs will undertake the necessary verification and administrative processes on your behalf. All qualified teachers who are employed in a relevant school in England must, by law, have completed an induction period satisfactorily, subject to specified exceptions. Statutory induction is the bridge between initial teacher training and a career in teaching. It combines a personalised programme of development, support and professional dialogue, with monitoring and an assessment of performance against the relevant Standards. The programme should support the ECT in demonstrating that their performance against the relevant standards is satisfactory by the end of the period and equip them with the tools to be an effective and successful teacher. The decision about whether an ECT's performance against the relevant standards is satisfactory upon completion of induction should take into account the ECT's work context and must be made on the basis of what can reasonably be expected of an ECT by the end of their induction within the framework set out by the standards.  Judgements should reflect the expectation that ECTs have effectively consolidated their initial teacher training and demonstrated their ability to meet the relevant standards consistently over a sustained period in their practice.

To register for AB services only (if offering Core or DIY induction or Full induction with another Hub) please contact Kelly.Cartwright@deltatrust.org.uk for further information.
