Kick-start your teaching career as an ECT

4myschools can help you find and trial schools on supply or with a permanant role in your first school. Some ECT’s prefer to start more gently with a teaching assistant role which is fine by us and we can support you however you want to start.

The term early career teacher (ECT) has replaced the term newly qualified teacher (NQT). 4myschools have been working with (ECT) Early Career Teachers and schools since 2008.

ECT Induction Period

The standard length of induction has been increased from one school year to two school years

Will my timetable be reduced during an ECT Induction Period?

Yes, by 10% in the first year and 5 % in the second.

What is the difference between an ECT mentor and a tutor?

The role of the mentor has been newly introduced.  The mentor will have a key role in supporting the ECT during induction and is separate from the role of the induction tutor, providing regular monitoring and support, and coordination of assessment. Both are expected to hold QTS and be appointed by the Headteacher, In exceptional circumstances, it may be necessary for the headteacher to designate a single teacher to fulfil both roles.

How long can an ECT carry out supply teaching?

A qualified teacher who gained QTS on or after 1 September 2007 and who has not completed an induction period, can undertake short-term supply work of less than one term in a relevant school for a maximum period of 5 years from the point of award of QTS.an an ECT carry out supply teaching

Can an ECT extend the supply teaching time limit?

This is a fixed time limit with no discretion to extend it. Short-term supply placements of less than one term, or equivalent, cannot count towards induction, as such posts will not provide an ECT with the breadth of experience, support, and assessment necessary to enable them to demonstrate that their performance against the Teachers’ Standards is satisfactory.

Does supply teaching count towards an ECT Induction Period?

Short-term supply placements of less than one term, or equivalent, cannot count towards induction.

The length of the induction period an ECT is required to serve, whether the teaching post in which they are doing so is part-time or full-time, is the full-time equivalent of two school years. This usually consists of six school terms, divided into two periods each consisting of three school terms.

Can an ECT induction period be reduced?

In some exceptional circumstances, the length of an induction period may be reduced for part-time teachers or those with previous teaching experience agreed by the appropriate body

Who ensures an ECT is eligible to carry out supply teaching?

The headteacher/principal or supply agency is responsible for ensuring that a teacher who has not satisfactorily completed an induction period is eligible to carry out short-term supply work.
