I am writing to let you know that a Prior Information Notice (PIN) to notify the market of forthcoming market engagement events relating to national roll-out of the Early Career Framework (ECF) has been launched.

We will shortly be sharing with you a letter about this, addressed to all ITT providers. We would be most grateful if you could disseminate this letter to your network of providers to make them aware.


To ensure national roll-out is a success, we are seeking national providers to lead the delivery, from September 2021, of the national roll-out of the ECF for ECTs and mentors.  It is expected that lead providers will deliver their service in partnership with other high-quality organisations including the national network of Teaching School Hubs which will be in place in early 2021. It is expected that Teaching School Hubs, along with other education training providers, will play a key role in the delivery of the ECF.

Market engagement events

The Department will be undertaking market engagement events on the 14th, 15th, and 16th July at 10am. It is anticipated that events will last between 2 – 3 hours. The objectives of the event will be to:

  • give you an understanding of the aim of the procurement
  • to inform you of the Department priorities regarding the Early Career Framework and wider reforms
  • to give you the opportunity to provide feedback

To register your interest in attending, please see the PIN.

Additionally, you can find more information about the Early Career Framework here .
