Following a successful round of recruitment, we are delighted to now be offering further external places on our Early Career Teacher programme for September 2021. Our Academy Transformation Trust Institute, working in partnership with Ambition Institute, will be leading an expert, innovative training offer for Early Career Teachers and their mentors for the full two-year programme. I have attached copies of our curriculum for both Early Career Teachers and mentors, along with other useful information.

Our Early Career Teacher programme fulfils all statutory requirements of the Early Career Framework and will not only provide your Early Career Teachers with excellent grounding and training opportunities to ensure that they develop as expert practitioners but will also support your mentors in becoming highly effective Instructional Coaches. Our blend of synchronous, asynchronous, face-to-face, and digital learning provides a sector-leading range of ​people development opportunities for your Early Career Teachers, including engagement with leading educational thinkers and speakers at our conference events.

Our expert Early Career Programme Facilitators are all experienced, expert people development leaders and include our Director of Institute, also an Expert Advisor for Teacher Development Trust, John Catt published authors and a ResearchED organiser.

Building on our successful background as accredited ​SSAT Lead Practitioner trainers, including the development of two ​Lead Practitioner Learning Centres in partnership with SSAT, we are sharing our expertise to support the development of Early Career Teachers. Early Career Teacher development is at the heart of what we do at Academy Transformation Trust. We have recently published our Early Career Teacher book, “Letter to my NQT Self” with John Catt, with members of our expert team invited to present our approach to Early Career Teacher development at national events.

We are also so passionate about areas that are not at the forefront of the Early Career Framework and will be including training opportunities in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, along with child language acquisition, which are two examples of areas crucial to Early Career Teacher development, not currently covered by the ECF.

To give you in an insight into our approach, you can watch our Director of Institute, Abby Bayford discussing Early Career Teacher experiences with Tom Sherrington and Emma Turner, here:

Anyone signed-up ​to our Early Career Teacher Programme will also secure access to our Trust webinar series, through which we invite seminal educators and researchers to share the latest developments in pedagogy and support the creation of shared mental models around the very best teaching practice. All our partners will also be able to book free places at our annual national teaching conference.

If you would like to sign-up your ​Early Career Teachers and mentors, or you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact Mike Brett, our Deputy Director of Institute:
