Early Career Teacher Programme

Our programme is delivered over two years to give Newly Qualified Teachers the support and development opportunities they deserve, whilst offering a second year of support for teachers who have already completed their first year of teaching. This is to reflect our belief that Early Career Teachers are entitled to on-going, high quality professional development and to anticipate the implementation of the new Early Career Framework. The training is suitable for all Primary teachers in their first few years of teaching, regardless of their teacher training route.


  • Seven afternoon sessions each year covering a variety of relevant themes.
  • Three twilight network meetings for mentors each year.
  • Training delivered by SLEs and experienced subject specialists with a passion for Early Career Teacher development.
