Give the best start to your early career teachers with the Early Career Framework


Entrust is proud to be partnering with Capita and the University of Birmingham to deliver a world-class induction programme for early career teachers across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

The Early Career Framework is a two-year professional development programme for early career teachers (ECTs) and their mentors, funded by the Department for Education (DfE). The framework became statutory in September 2021 and will give your ECTs the guidance and confidence they need during this critical time, supporting greater staff retention and better outcomes for your pupils.

How we can help you

Our induction programme will ensure your early career teachers receive the support they need during their first two years of transition and development. It’s fully funded, so there are no costs, time or resources required from your school. Most importantly, it’ll help your new teachers feel more confident and in control at the beginning of their careers, supporting greater staff retention and better educational outcomes.

Over the two years, your early career teachers will complete modules that focus on:

  • Supporting all learners

  • Dealing with challenging behaviour

  • Building effective relationships with parents and carers
  • Adaptive teaching

  • Teacher wellbeing and managing workload

  • Literacy

  • Pupil wellbeing

  • Implementing change

  • Support and intervention
