Early Career Teachers (ECT)

For ECTs, the first years of teaching are full of new responsibilities, experiences and opportunities to build on. It is a time to put into practice the knowledge they have already acquired and should be a fully supported journey to ensure standards are met, confidence is built and skills are developed.
