Please Note


Guidance for ECTs starting induction this September 2021 will be published here shortly - in the interim, please see the government statutory guidance for ECT induction including their Early Career Framework (ECF) overview guidance.

For NQTs currently undergoing induction, please continue to use our current induction guidance. NQTs who had already started/partially completed induction before the new arrangements come into force this September 2021, induction will remain at 1-year.  

Note:  The DfE have set a deadline of September 2023 to have completed induction under the current 1-year format.  Those who have not completed induction by this deadline will be subject to a 2-year ECF based induction minus time already served.
