NQT/ECF Training Programme

Early Career Framework Training offer

Loreto Learning and Support (LLS) are working in partnership with Best Practice Network & Outstanding Leaders Partnership to deliver the Early Career Development Programme which delivers the Early Career Framework reforms for Early Career Teachers. This DfE-funded programme is open to all schools in Trafford and beyond with early career teachers starting in September 2021.

Schools can register their details through the  Early Career Development Programme web site now and they will be provided with full signup instructions at a later date.

Should you wish, Appropriate Body provision will be provided in conjunction with Trafford LA or schools can choose to use their local Teaching School Hub.

 

What is the Early Career Development Programme?

From September 2021, the government is funding an entitlement for all early career teachers in England to access high-quality professional development at the start of their career with a view to greater teacher support and retention. Best Practice Network/Outstanding Leaders Partnership will be delivering the programme nationwide from September.

New teachers will now receive development support and training over 2 years instead of one, all underpinned by the DfE’s Early Career Framework reforms.

 

How much does the Early Career Development Programme cost?

The programme is funded by the DfE and freely available for all state-maintained academies and schools in England.

 

What does the funding provider for?

The DfE funding provides for the full 2 year induction of an early career teacher (consisting of 122 learning hours over the duration of the programme). There is a further 36 hours of funded training for an in-school mentor (see images below).

As well as full access to the programme outlined above, the DfE funding provides for:

  • 10% time-off timetable for early career teachers in Year 1
  • 5% time-off timetable in the second year of induction for all early career teachers to undertake induction activities including training and mentoring
  • funding for mentors to spend with early career teachers in the second year of induction - this is based on 20 hours of mentoring across the academic year

 

How do I apply for the Early Career Induction Programme?

Please register your details with Outstanding Leaders Partnership on their Early Career Development web page and they will contact you when the full application process has been confirmed by the Department for Education.

Headteachers will shortly receive a letter from the Department of Education to request their provider preference. ***Should you wish to work with Loreto Learning and Support, you need to select Best Practice Network as your provider. *** This will then register you on our provision list and your face to face sessions will be delivered here at Loreto.

Summer School 2021

Loreto was delighted to provide an optional Summer School funded by the Department for Education to support pupils in making up for education missed during the Covid-19 pandemic. This was a welcome opportunity to offer all new year 7 students an insight into the Loreto Community and also additional support for some of our Year 10 students to recover lost curriculum and prepare for year 11. Year 7 Summer School A choice of 2 different weeks were offered to all incoming Year 6 students (our new Year 7) and this flexibility, together with the overwhelming support from parents and carers, ensured a take up of more than 87% of the year group. With the help of staff and sixth form students the aim of the weeks was to support the transition from primary school to secondary school. We gave the new students an opportunity to experience the school environment and ethos without the daunting aspect of many other students. The students were split into groups, to facilitate greater social interaction and allow new friendships to be formed.  In a very short space of time, we saw their confidence grow along with their awareness of the Loreto community.   The students were fortunate to be able to experience many different aspects of a secondary school curriculum. Over the course of the Summer School two weeks, pupils were able to engage in a mixture of academic and enrichment activities in Science, Mathematics, English, History, Geography, Music workshops, Creative Arts, Languages and even an indoor planetarium. The students also grew their talents and explored the arts and this will lead to their Arts Award qualification during 2021/22. An enlightening experience for the whole Loreto community – both staff and pupils alike.    The students also had the invaluable opportunity to meet new peers and get to know each other in their new setting, particularly during their free time at break and lunch. The students also had tours of the school to prepare them ahead of the start of the academic year, guided by a sixth former perspective.   Feedback from students and parents\carers   “I just wanted to drop you a note to say Thank You for hosting a wonderful summer school last week. My daughter had an awesome week meeting new friends, exploring the school and of course learning lots!  It really was a fabulous week and now she is excited and ready for September.  Please pass on our thanks to the teachers, sixth-formers and all the staff.”  “I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the staff involved in putting on this week. It has been great for the girls to get the chance to feel a bit more comfortable in their new surroundings and start making new friends. After a long and testing academic year it really is very generous of so many people to volunteer their time. “  Year 10 Summer School The Year 10 summer school in English offered provision for students to benefit from additional support in both English Language and English Literature. This included some revision of key skills including language analysis and reading strategies and introductory work on a set text in English Literature. It enabled some diagnosis of student's needs in order to inform an ongoing programme of support throughout year 11.
