NEW - ECT Updates
New teacher training framework
The DfE will be replacing the Initial Teacher Training Core Content Framework (CCF) and Early Career Framework (ECF) with a combined initial teacher training and early career framework (ITTECF) from September 2025 in order to reduce unnecessary repetition. This is one of the changes and improvements announced by the DfE following its review of the ECF and CCF.
Other changes include the development of enhanced subject-specific materials by training providers, increased content for trainees on how to support pupils with SEND, and changes to reduce the workload for mentors.
