***Important Service Update - September 2023***
Induction for ECTs from September 2023
For ECTs already completing induction with us:
We will continue to support our current ECTs who are registered with us and who won’t have completed enough time to finish their induction in July 2023. The Department for Education feel this transition period is in ECTs’ best interests because it allows schools to provide stability for them during their induction. By allowing schools to keep their existing ECTs with us, the majority of ECTs who began induction in September 2022 will avoid any disruption by remaining with one AB throughout.
We are delighted with this decision as it allows us to continue to support our existing ECTs and we look forward to doing so in September.
For new ECTs:
Unfortunately, as a result of government changes to who can act as an Appropriate Body for the purposes of ECT induction, The Education People (ECT Induction Team) will not be able to accept new registrations from 01 September 2023.
For any new ECTs registering for induction after 01 September 2023, we will be working with the two Teaching School Hubs in Kent to support them in their delivery of ECT induction services and so schools will need to contact one of the hubs below to register any new ECTs from September.
