Early Career Framework (ECF) Programme East London

Early Career Teacher Training

September 2021 saw the statutory introduction of the Early Career Framework for all new teachers, regardless of training route. 

‍The ECF gives all Early Career Teachers an entitlement to a two-year Induction of high-quality training and in-school mentor support.

London District East Teaching School Hub will provide a fully funded programme in partnership with Ambition Institute offering:

  • Two years of fully funded training for Early Career Teachers
  • A dedicated mentor training programme

For any new ECT from this year, all schools need to:

  1. Register with DfE portal and keep updated:
  1. Register with the Hub and Ambition:

ECT Registration form (ECT, Mentor, or ECT Co-ordinator) v1.0 Dec 21

Change Request form for ECF Participants (ECT, Mentor, or ECT Co-ordinator) v1.0 Dec 21

  1. Register with the Appropriate Body by emailing Laura Moss at – who will then set you up on ECT Manager. 

The ECF provides an entitlement to training — a very comprehensive training programme designed by experts at Ambition Institute, not an assessment programme.
