Upcoming HUBTalks

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
If you have an Early Career Teacher starting in September, you need to:
  1. Register them on the DfE portal
  2. Sign up for the Red Kite ECF Full Induction programme
This applies to ECTs that are just starting their induction and ECTs in their second year of teaching. You can also register your ECT with the Red Kite Appropriate Body on the same form. 

We are delivering a series of online ECF Information Events to answer any questions about the Early Career Framework. These are especially designed to support any schools that are new to the programme in 2022-23. Please come along to one of the upcoming sessions:
National Professional Qualifications
The DfE have announced that schools with fewer than 600 pupils are eligible for a targeted support fund of £200 per staff member who participates in an NPQ from October 2022, plus all NPQ programmes will be fully funded through 2022-2023 and 2023-24. Red Kite TSH will offer eight NPQ programmes in partnership with Teach First from October:
  • NPQ for Executive Leadership

Including two brand-new NPQs:

  • NPQ for Early Years Leadership – for leaders qualified to at least level 3 with a full and relevant qualification, who are, or are aspiring to be:
    • managers of private, voluntary and independent nurseries
    • headteachers of school-based or maintained nurseries

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.
