The Britannia Teaching School Alliance has been using the Early Career Framework to help embed action research as part of its CPD programme for NQTs and RQTs. John Collier explains

When the Early Career Framework (ECF) was published (DfE, 2019), we spotted an opportunity to pre-emptively introduce some of its content to our network of recently qualified teachers before the planned national roll-out (due to begin in September 2021).

As a Teaching School based in Stoke-on-Trent, we tested the waters through a collaborative model involving three termly sessions or “network days” over the course of an academic year. However, both teachers and leaders have seen so many advantages to working in this way that we intend to sustain the initiative over the next academic year too. Here is what we did and some tips for how you could see similar results in your own school.
