Early Career Professional Development Programme

Dear Headteacher,


Your school is eligible to benefit from DfE-funded professional development through the Early Career Framework expansion programme this year, providing training and support to NQTs through a 1-year programme. The good news is that it starts this term.


I wanted to let you know that there is still time to enrol your NQTs and their mentors. We are keen to ensure that as many schools as possible benefit from the programme.  This is especially important with Initial teacher Training being curtailed in light of COVID-19 and associated school closure. It is easy to sign-up and “onboard” your teachers –all training and delivery is taken care of.


You can find out more about the programme and sign-up here. St John Bosco Teaching School Alliance will be your local delivery hub.


We are genuinely excited about what’s on offer. Education Development Trust’s experience in providing professional development, and dedication to evidence-led design, will ensure NQTs are armed with skills they can use in the classroom straight away. It will also provide the support needed to help them be the best teachers they can be during this period of change and disruption.


If you have any questions or would like to talk to us more, please get in touch.


Kind regards,


Jane Kennedy

Director of Teaching School
