COVID-19 recovery – investing in early career teachers in schools

After a challenging year for trainees, it is now more important than ever that new teachers get the support they need to deliver great teaching and help ensure every student is supported to fulfil their potential.

Supporting teachers is core to the Department for Education’s long term recovery plan. The Early Career Framework reforms, rolling out nationally from September 2021, will ensure that all early career teachers learn how to apply the best available evidence on effective teaching. These reforms include changes to statutory induction to extend induction support from one year to two years and ensure new teachers receive training and support.
