he Early Career Framework (ECF) (Department for Education 2019a) is a reform for schools in England that has arisen from the Department for Education’s (DfE) focus on teacher supply, articulated through the teacher recruitment and retention strategy (Department for Education 2019b). The ECF is intended to support early career teachers (ECTs) through mandatory two-year focused training as part of their induction phase to become fully qualified against the Teachers’ Standards (Department for Education 2021b). It became statutory in September 2021 following pilot programmes and early roll-out phases in the preceding two years. The ultimate aim of the ECF is to equip ECTs to teach effectively, to develop self-efficacy and thereby want to stay in teaching for the long term (mitigating ECT high levels of attrition – Worth, Lynch, Hilary, Rennie and Andrade 2018). The ECF applies to primary and secondary teachers in maintained (including academy) schools in England. It does not align with independent schools, early years or further education
