EARLY CAREER FRAMEWORK

As the half term break approaches a few facts and key dates and information for you to be aware of:

This September we have welcomed over 115 new ECTs to the One Cumbria Early Career Framework programme.

Year 1 Induction sessions have taken place and we are embarking on our first in person Year 1 seminars around the county.

Year 2 Autumn term seminars have also taken place in Penrith and Workington.

Our ECTs and mentors continue to work incredibly hard to improve outcomes for the pupils in our schools. It is a pleasure to work with each and every one of them.

Best wishes,

Tina
