Primary ECTs

In Newham we work hard to offer ECTs the best possible support during those crucial early years. Schools offer a comprehensive programme of training with ready access to professional advice.

Your first years

Some schools start a  Familiarisation Programme in July, so that you have a chance to think about planning your classroom even before you have a class.

From September you will have regular induction training with other ECTs. You will have plenty of opportunities to talk over your experiences in the classroom with experienced teachers, teacher trainers and specialist advisors.

Day to day advice, guidance and support comes from your personal induction tutor, an experienced colleague from your own school.

Schools have a highly supportive professional development programme for teachers at all stages of their career.
