Hello! And welcome to our newsletter - the first one since it started to feel as though Spring is truly on its way. Read on for information about the Early Career Framework (ECF), working with us in 2022-23, and much more.
From the same people behind Kooth, the app providing free online counselling and emotional wellbeing support service for young people, comes Qwell – a similar service for adults. If you're in Norfolk, you can now register for free to access their support and resources, which include articles, videos, podcasts, message boards, and live chat with the team. Sign up here.
Also free for all school staff is a subscription to Headspace, the science-backed app in mindfulness and meditation, providing unique tools and resources to help reduce stress, build resilience, and aid better sleep. More here.
Spotlight on... What does the ECF mean for your school?
Last September saw the national rollout of the Early Career Framework (ECF) reforms, a key part of the Department for Education’s response to 22% of NQTs who qualified in 2015 leaving the state sector two years later.
The implementation of the ECF affects how we plan our staffing, with the new roles to support ECTs requiring protected time and training. Even if you have an ECT this year, you may not feel completely confident with the revised statutory guidance for induction, and associated processes.
Still unsure what you need to do? We're partnering with Inspiration Teaching School Hub and Norfolk County Council's Appropriate Body service to deliver a webinar on this subject, where you can ask your questions and get the answers you need.
Are you, or one of your colleagues, interested in developing your knowledge and skills? We will be recruiting new facilitators to join our team in April.
Here at the Julian TSH we see enabling colleagues to become system leaders as being key to workforce development and retention – where previously there were Specialist Leaders of Education, now there are opportunities to facilitate or otherwise help deliver Hub programmes. We are committed to inviting people from all schools to help deliver our offer, and once designated as one of our facilitators, your staff will develop knowledge and skills which motivate them, improve their impact in your organisation, and keep them with you that little bit longer.
Do you anticipate employing an ECT next school year? Do you have colleagues keen to develop professionally by studying an NPQ? Or do you want to help facilitate one of our programmes?
Fill in our form (halfway down the page) and we'll be in touch!
