We make frequent reference to Early Career Teaching (ECT) Jobs, as this is the new term the industry is taking on, replacing NQTs (Newly Qualified Teachers), accompanied by a variety of logistical changes also. These changes include:

  • Length of induction increased from 1 to 2 years.
  • 5% timetable reduction in second year of employment (following 10% reduction in year 1).
  • A mentor assigned to each ECT, as well as an induction tutor, instead of the two roles being combined into one.

These changes are for the purpose of further embedding new teachers into primary school jobs, secondary school jobs and graduate teaching jobs generally. This aligns well with our values as, we believe, the more support a teacher has when starting a new role, the more their confidence grows and the better a teacher they become.




We’re always on-hand if you have any questions or would like to chat about what we think would be the right course of action for you.
