Early Career Teachers (ECT)

We are delighted that you have chosen Ealing to begin your teaching career.

We are very proud of our schools as 92% of Ealing’s children and young people learn within good or outstanding school.

Most of our schools are part of the Ealing Learning Partnership, a commitment and joint investment with the council to promote educational excellence and well-being for all learners through collaboration and innovation.

Induction at a glance

  • All qualified teachers who are employed in a relevant school in England must, by law, complete an induction period. The length of the induction period, whether part-time or full-time ECT, is two school years.
  • Statutory induction is the bridge between initial teacher training and teaching career.
  • Induction combines a structured programme of development, support and professional dialogue, underpinned by the Early Career Framework, with monitoring and an assessment of performance against the Teachers’ Standards.
  • ECTs are entitled to 10% reduced timetable in the first year and 5% in the second year for professional development.
  • ECTs must complete an induction period satisfactorily as there is no repeat.

Support available for ECT induction

  • Ealing Local Authority acts as the Appropriate Body (AB) and monitors and supports the NQT induction process. The quality assurance of statutory induction, through the role of the appropriate body (AB), is important both for ensuring that schools provide adequate support for their ECTs, and that their assessment is fair and consistent across all institutions.
  • Mirela Temo (ECT induction, EMA and RE adviser) is the main contact at the appropriate body. Mirela provides support to schools on ECT induction statutory requirements and procedures, assessments and conducts the quality assurance of induction and fidelity checking of Early Career Framework programme.
