This new, DfE-funded programme builds on the thinking behind the Early Career Framework and is designed to help early career teachers develop the skills and knowledge required to be successful in their roles.

 

  • Improve wellbeing and job satisfaction of early career teachers
  • Two-year induction training package, aligned with the Early Career Framework
  • Attract and retain teachers at the start of their careers, so they can better support pupils

Curriculum

Each term participants will focus on a different strand of effective practice: behaviour, instruction and subject. They will also develop understanding of how pupils learn.

The key learning from the three strands is outlined below:

What you'll learn

 

Behaviour

  • Using routines to support behaviour management.
  • Creating a positive learning environment.
  • Support with overcoming low-level disruption.

Instruction

  • Supporting pupils through instruction based strategies such as questioning, scaffolding and explicit teaching.
  • How to adapt teaching style to work for all pupils.
  • The importance that prior knowledge plays learning.
  • How to use feedback effectively.

Subject

  • Creating good habits of planning to support learning goals.
  • Strategies for examining and addressing the gaps and misconceptions pupils may have.
  • Considering how literacy can be developed across all subjects.

 

How you'll learn

  • 3 full-day conferences (focused on deepening their understanding of how pupils learn, the principles of responsive teaching, and effective implementation).
  • 6 one-hour virtual clinics to support early career teachers with strategies for classroom practice, based on their study materials and key areas from Early Career Framework.
  • Weekly modules of online learning. Self-study modules help early career teachers engage with the latest research and ideas for practical classroom implementation in a manageable and accessible way.
  • Weekly instructional coaching sessions designed to support early career teachers to apply insights from the study materials into their classroom practice. Mentors will provide teachers with a specific, bite-sized action step to practice each week that responds to their own classroom context and practice.
