Early Careers

At ASSET we believe in giving all Early Careers Teachers (ECT) the best possible start to their careers.
We are committed to delivering bespoke support to each individual.

Headteacher St. Helen's Primary
Trust Initial Teacher Training Lead

In 2021/22, the Early Careers Framework sets out plans for all Trusts and schools to provide support and additional release, training and mentoring for all new teachers for the first two years of their career. We understand and support this move as it is crucial that we nurture the strengths of our new staff and allow them to feel secure and confident in what they do. All Asset Schools have qualified mentors to support new staff in school. In addition, the central team and other experts across the Trust will deliver 3 days of focussed CPD over the first year focussing on pedagogy and the latest research led ideas and practice

This year we are privileged to have 12 early careers teachers, 13 SCITT students and 14 undergraduate placement teachers training in our trust schools.

ECT and staff working with them will be supported by Kate, who oversees Initial Teacher Training (ITT) and Early Careers teaching across the trust.
