From September 2021, statutory induction is changing.

All early career teachers will be entitled to a 2 year programme of high quality professional development and mentoring underpinned by the Early Career Framework (ECF). The ECF sets out what all early career teachers should learn about, and learn how to do, during the first 2 years of their careers.

What schools need to do

If your school offers statutory induction, you need to replace your current induction process.

More information on the approaches available can be found on the Early career framework reforms: overview page of the GOV.​UK website.

Use the GOV.UK online service to tell them if you do or do not expect early career teachers to join you in 2021.
