Early Career Teachers graduate after completing their ECT Induction

We pride ourselves on running an exceptional ECT (Early Career Teacher) Programme in the schools across the Trust and are lucky to have 38 ECTs in our schools who split between first and second years. The ECT programme used to be known as the NQT programme but two years ago, the Department for Education (DfE) rebranded the programme and the duration was changed to two years, as opposed to just one year of induction previously.

At the end of term we had the opportunity to congratulate our first group of ECT2 teachers who all successfully completed their two year statutory induction periods. In recognition of this achievement, the ECT2s from across the Trust were invited to a graduation event at Spalding Academy where they also had the opportunity to reflect on their final training module and to collaborate with colleagues from other schools in the Trust.

Mrs Bland who leads the ECT induction programme across the Trust said: “We had a wonderful event celebrating the successes of our ECT2 cohort. They have been incredibly dedicated to their induction and have invigorated the wider staff teams with their innovative ideas and excellent practice. We are very lucky to have such dynamic and engaging staff teaching in our schools and the event was an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the contribution of these individuals”.

The ECT programme at South Lincolnshire Academies Trust was recently complimented by external assessors with the findings stating ‘outstanding practice’ and ‘no areas to improve’.
