Upcoming HUBTalks

15 June 2022 Mel Ainscow, Emeritus Professor of Education at Manchester University is internationally recognised as an authority on the promotion of inclusion and equity in education. You are invited to listen to Mel presenting his international research on the importance of research and collaboration in the school system.

Coming in the new academic year: Professor Jonathan Sharples from the EEF joins us to talk us through the updated Implementation Guidance Report.
Early Career Framework
We will be holding a series of online ECF Information Events in the summer term especially to support any schools that are new to the programme in 2022-23. These will take place on:
If you would like to register an Early Career Teacher with the Red Kite ECF Full Induction programme, please complete this form. You can use this to register ECTs starting with you this term or in September. If you employ an ECT who has started their induction already in another setting, you can also let us know this information on the form and we will oversee the transfer to our programme.
Updates to DfE's Manage training for early career teachers' service

From 10 May, changes will be made to the DfE's 'Manage training for early career teachers' service to allow schools to set up their training programmes for the next academic year.

Revised information and guidance is available at Collection: Induction, training and support for early career teachers.

Schools will still be required to give information about their ECTs to 3 different services:

  1. DfE
  2. Appropriate Body 
  3. ECF provider

The DfE portal schools will initially ask schools to answer whether they are having an ECT in September – you need to click yes, no or not sure at this stage. Click NO if you are not having an ECT so they don’t keep asking you. If you click YES you will be asked to input the details of the INDUCTION TUTOR-name and email. The INDUCTION TUTOR is the person that will complete the reviews and make the assessments (statutory). This is different to the mentor who works weekly with the ECT on the ECF.

The Induction tutor will then receive an email to input the ECT and mentor details on the portal. They will be required to give the following information: ECT Name; email; induction start date; Teacher Reference Number (TRN) and date-of-birth.

This is the same information Red Kite will require together with where they gained QTS and what subject or age range they will be teaching, and contract details (part/full time).

If working with Red Kite we will collect information once – if you are working with both our ECF and AB then we will transfer this information so you only need to give us this once. If you are just working with the ECF or just the AB then please indicate this on the form.

The Appropriate Body will continue to use ECTManager and ECTs can be registered on the system as soon as you have the information. For those schools not set up on ECTManager from this year – we will guide you through the really easy process.

Supporting Recovery Training Programme
In the wake of the pandemic, schools are working hard to mitigate the impact Covid-related disruption has had on their pupils’ learning and life chances. The Education Endowment Foundation’s Research Schools Network are delivering newly developed free online training programmes, specifically designed to provide support school leaders in their approach to educational recovery, school improvement and planning for the next academic year.

The programmes will provide guidance on using evidence to identify potential solutions to challenges schools are facing, and context-specific tools and worked examples of putting new initiatives into practice.
Three cohorts are running in North Yorkshire:
  • For secondary, alternative provision and special schools:
    • 7th June (13.00 - 16.00), 15th June (14.00 - 15.30), 20th June (14.00 - 15.30), 6th July (13.00 - 16.00)
