Core Induction Programme

Schools offering the Core Induction Programme need to register their ECT with an Appropriate Body. This programme requires the school to develop a programme using the DfE Early Career framework materials. The AB is required to carry out more quality assurance and fidelity checks and this programme will incur a higher AB charge than the Full Induction Programme.

  • Fidelity check before the start of the induction period by the AB ensuring induction meets the ECF induction programme standards.
  • AB registration of ECTs on the TRA system.
  • Ensure ECTs are fairly and regularly assessed through collection of monitoring reports and formal assessment points at the end of both years of induction and interim points.
  • Quality assure the schools detailed breakdown of the programme for years 1 and 2.
  • Additional observation(s)/quality assurance of ECF induction programme throughout the two years.
  • Additional support for ECTs not meeting Teachers Standards.

Fees £500 Quality Assurance + £195 per ECT per annum
