ECT registration - for support and guidance on registering your ECT to join a local delivery partnership with Best Practice Network and BTSA, please view or visit our ECF website pages:
How do I register my ECT and ECM for the Early Career Induction Programme?
Schools who have not had an ECT previously need to register with both the DfE and an Early Career Framework provider
Schools can access their DfE account and the latest information on registering their ECTs and ECMs here:
Register with DfE - Manage training for early career teachers
Schools are not able to choose their Lead provider on the DfE online portal. They can select their preferred method of training (if registering with BPN then please select 'fully funded Lead Provider'). Schools are required to input the details of their ECTs and ECMs and then are directed to the websites of the Lead Providers to register their schools with them (Best Practice Network registration link attached below) and can then also select BTSA as their delivery partner, should they wish. Schools will then receive an email from the DfE asking them to accept registration with their chosen Lead Provider.
To register your school with Best Practice Network, please select the link below:
Best Practice Network - Register your school
For schools who have already had an ECT registered with Best Practice Network and wish to continue, please input your new ECTs and ECMs onto the DfE online service and BPN will manage their registration.
