The Early Career Framework underpins an entitlement to a fully funded, two-year package of structured support for Early Career Teachers, linked to the best available research evidence. From September 2021, new teachers will receive development support and training over two years instead of one, with additional funding available to support their time out of the classroom in the second year and with a dedicated mentor. Support will be available to mentors and funding will be provided to cover the mentor’s time with the mentee in the second year of teaching.

The HISP TSH will be a delivery partner working with a national provider to support the Early Career Framework reform across our region from September 2021.
