Chiltern Teaching School Hub

Early Careers Framework

Chiltern Teaching School Hub is proud to be partners with Best Practice network in the delivery of the newly reformed Early Careers Framework (ECF). We know many teachers value professional development and we want to ensure teachers new to the profession get off on the right foot.


Chiltern Teaching School Hub alongside our partners are delivering the Early Career Framework to over 400 ECTs across Bedfordshire, East & North Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes. The DFE funded programme includes a blended approach of face-to-face and online sessions both of which are complemented by a self-study online portal. Sessions are led for both Early Careers Teachers and Mentors. 

Running 17 groups across the hub allows for a degree of flexibility for schools as well as an online catch-up group to support staff who may not be able to attend a one-off session. All facilitators are Best Practice Network Associates as well as being specialists of education in your local area.
