EARLY CAREER FRAMEWORK
Xavier are delighted to offer the early career framework and appropriate body services to over 450 early career teachers (ECTs) and their mentor, across more than 300 schools in the region. The newly introduced national programme offers all ECTs and their mentors a mandatory entitlement to a two-year programme of high-quality training, delivered by phase and subject specific experts across our strategic schools and delivery partners. Working in partnership with Teach First, Xavier ECTs and mentors engage with online self-study, school-based professional discussion and attend centralised seminars, both online and face to face. Alongside this training aspect of the programme we are pleased to continue our long-standing role as an Appropriate Body working collaboratively with schools to assess ECTs against the Teachers’ Standards and register their successful completion of the induction period.
The Early Career Framework supports early career teachers, offering a comprehensive two-year programme for ECTs and their Mentors. The suite of National Professional Qualifications provides a wide range of specialist and leadership programmes for colleagues wishing to explore their skills in the classroom and leadership roles further.
