The unique start to the autumn term this year has brought many challenges, and we know that can be daunting for those new to the profession. Here are some resources we think will support new teachers as they take the first steps into their new careers.

  • We know nearly everyone who has just started their teaching careers this September would have had a disrupted ITT experience. That’s why we’ve published the Early Career Framework (ECF) core induction programmes a year ahead of schedule. These high-quality development materials can be used in a variety of different ways to help support your learning and professional development over the coming academic year. For more information, visit GOV.UK.
  • We’ve gathered together helpful information and tips into a one-page guide for new teachers. From where to find the latest guidance to looking after your own wellbeing, this guide has been developed to help new teachers get the support they need in their first few weeks. Click here to download it.

The DfE’s teaching blog features a number of pieces from both NQTs and teachers/school leaders with more experience that are aimed at supporting those early in their career. From top tips for your first term to the extra support available to NQTs in these challenging times, you can read them all on GOV.UK.
