Hello! And welcome to the latest Early Career Teacher Programme newsletter. We send these half-termly, keeping you up to date with all things Early Career Teachers.
Read on to find out how mentors and ECTs can book on to their final events of the year. As a reminder - attendance at all live events is expected as part of this funded programme, and form part of your ECTs' statutory induction entitlement. If you or your ECT misses an event, catch up materials will be assigned in StepLab and once these are complete the session is deemed to have been attended.
We know that schools are looking at their recruitment needs for September: if you employ an ECT, the way you register them with an ECT programme provider is changing - find out more about that below.
We also know that things rarely run completely smoothly in schools - if you need any information or support, or if there's anything you think we need to know, please do contact us: email@example.com. We're here to help!
As ever, thank you for all you're doing to make our ECTs feel welcome and supported in the profession, and thank you for supporting us in the delivery of this programme. We really do appreciate all that you do.

Spotlight on... Conferences and Clinics
For the remaining events of this term, we are inviting bookings via Eventbrite instead of using MyAmbition. This allows colleagues to choose the date that best suits them.
The final ECT clinic of the year can be booked by clicking here. We will be emailing this link to all ECTs next week; please do make sure that they book their place.
Cohort 2 Induction Conferences
These are scheduled for July - more information will be sent to all schools next week. This is a great chance to get new mentors up to speed prior to September.
Spotlight on... Changes for 2022-23
DfE are in the process of contacting all schools to inform them of how to register ECTs and mentors for September 2022. There have been some changes made to the DfE Portal: if you couldn't make it to our joint webinar with Inspiration Teaching School Hub and Norfolk Local Authority AB, fear not - we've collated the important information into a series of bite size videos.
