Delivering statutory ECT inductions

21 Jul 2021

Message from DfE

Many induction tutors/coordinators are yet to sign in to the DfE’s new Teacher CPD Service to confirm how they plan to deliver statutory inductions next year, or to confirm that their school does not expect any early career teachers (ECTs).

Action required: Before September 2021, induction tutors/coordinators should:

  • choose a delivery approach in order to meet the new requirements. The easiest way to sign up to a provider-led programme is to contact your local teaching school hub or your appropriate body - schools can also contact lead providers, or other known delivery partners, directly - they will talk you through how to access this support for your early career teachers and mentors
  • set up their programme through DfE’s online service if they want to use an approved funded provider, or deliver the accredited materials themselves. We would encourage schools on these routes to access the digital service and nominate an induction tutor before the end of the summer term, or use the service to confirm that you are not expecting any ECTs to start in September
