CLTA are proud to work in partnership with the Cheshire Teaching School Hub and Best Practice Network to deliver this important 2-year programme.

The Early Career Framework has been designed with the Early Career Teacher in mind. The first years of a teacher's career are vitally important for professional development and the best time to develop good habits and effective teaching strategies.

Flexibly delivered with the time constraints of an ECT in mind, the programme comprehensively delivers all the content of the Early Career Framework and slots neatly into the schedule of an early career teacher.

  • Face-to-face and online webinars with leading experts
  • Regular meetings with an in-school mentor
  • Self-study featuring rich multimedia content including videos, practical tasks and discussion activities. 

Developing the next generation of teachers

The programme supports ECTs to develop the skills and confidence needed to flourish in the classroom. Designed to follow seamlessly from Initial Teacher Training, the 2 year fully-funded induction programme gives ECTs structured support based on the Early Career Framework and additionally provides for the training of in-school mentors.

  • Provides a solid evidence-based development programme for a long and successful career in teaching
  • Delivers vital support at a critical stage in a teacher's career allowing for greater retention of staff
  • Includes a development programme for in-school mentors facilitating the sharing of experience and best practice
  • Fully funded by the DfE with flexible non-onerous delivery schedule

Venue: CLTA Training Suite, Kelsall Primary School, Flat Lane, CW6 0PU.

Facilitator: Steven Meredith, CLTA QA Lead Mentor and University of Chester UBTEM
