New guidance now published which comes into force on 1 September 2021: Statutory guidance induction for early career teachers (GOV.UK)

Please note the term early career teacher (ECT) replaces newly qualified teacher (NQT).

This guidance updates and replaces the previous NQT Statutory Guidance (2018), explains the induction provisions for ECTs and helps individuals comply with Education Regulations (2012) for induction.

Where possible, schools should have regard to this amended statutory guidance in relation to ECTs who began their statutory induction before 1 September 2021.

The AB has produced a short summary of the DfE induction guidance for ECTs, with all the relevant information, which can be accessed on Ealing Grid for Learning (log in needed).
