What is the Early Career Development Programme?
From September 2021, the government is funding an entitlement for all early career teachers in England to access high-quality professional development at the start of their career with a view to greater teacher support and retention. Supported by their delivery partners, Best Practice Network will be delivering the programme nationwide.
New teachers will now receive development support and training over 2 years instead of one, all underpinned by the DfE’s Early Career Framework reforms.
How much does the Early Career Development Programme cost?
The programme is funded by the DfE and freely available for all state-maintained academies and schools in England.
What does the funding provide for?
The DfE funding provides for the full 2 year induction of an early career teacher (consisting of 122 learning hours over the duration of the programme). There is a further 36 hours of funded training for an in-school mentor.
