Alpha Teaching School Hub  

We are delighted to be working with a strong network of schools within the Alpha Teaching School Hub Area of Tendring, Colchester, Ipswich and Babergh, who are collaborating through the already rich sense of purpose across, to ensure an exciting and forward-thinking future for students in the four local district areas.  

The Early Career Framework has been introduced by the DfE to provide support and guidance to ECTs throughout their first two years of teaching.  The framework is structured to further develop ECTs professional practice through online learning, virtual training and the support of a fully trained mentor.

ECF Feedback:

“The ECT Mentor training session yesterday afternoon was really, really good. The facilitators structured it really well; very helpfully indeed”

“Learning about how to identify and address misconceptions. It has given me some ideas that I can try out in my own practise such as giving out little quizzes to assess what children know”
Getting new ideas from other teachers”
