Early Career Teachers

All Early Career Teachers (ECTs) in England undergoing statutory induction will be entitled to two years of high-quality professional development support based on the ECF.

Further information can be found here:

ECT registration

From September 2024 all ECT appropriate body responsibilities will move away from local authorities and onto teaching school hubs. This means Bedford Borough Council will not be accepting any new ECT induction registrations.

ECT Induction forms and handbooks can be requested by emailing ECTinduction@bedford.gov.uk 

ECT Monitoring Survey 

We would be grateful if could take a few minutes to complete this survey about the quality of support you have received so far.

With your help, we hope to improve the experience for future ECTs throughout their induction in Bedford Borough.
