Your Choices for ECF Delivery

Schools are expected to deliver an induction period that is underpinned by the ECF.

There are 3 approaches that schools can choose from to enable the delivery of an ECF based induction:

  • A funded provider led programme (FIP: Full Induction Programme) *
  • Schools deliver their own training using the DfE accredited materials and resources (CIP: Core Induction Programme)
  • Schools design & deliver their own ECF based induction (DIY)

Next steps for schools
  • Choose the type of ECF programme that you wish to offer your ECT (FIP* CIP, DIY)
  • Inform the DfE of your choice of programme type through their portal*
  • Get in touch with OneCornwall if signing up for FIP through our identified national provider
  • Register your ECT with an Appropriate Body

* the DfE have produced a 'walk through video' of their ECF schools registration portal. You can access this video below.
