The early career framework (ECF) reforms is a step change in support for early career teachers, providing a funded entitlement to a structured 2-year package of high-quality professional development for early career teachers. The reforms are part of the government’s teacher recruitment and retention strategy, which aims to improve the training and development opportunities available to teachers.
The framework is the evidence based which underpins this new entitlement for early career teachers' professional development. It sets out what all early career teachers should learn about, and learn how to do, during the first 2 years of their careers.
