Early Career Teacher

Build on strengths, develop skills

Invest in early career teachers and help them meet new challenges. We ask trainee teachers about their skills and aspirations in an online survey, then recommend the perfect courses to help them develop.

Build confidence

Directly addresses teachers' development needs.

Save money

A cost-effective way to develop skills with expert CPD.

Mapped to the ECF

Survey and recommendations follow the early career framework.

How it works

1. Online survey

Teachers complete a simple online self-evaluation to analyse their professional development needs and identify areas they want to improve.

2. Personal CPD programme

The survey engine recommends 15 CPD courses to support their development goals. It also assigns them 5 universal, core courses on 'statutory' topics.

3. Self-directed learning

Teachers learn flexibly with interactive, self-directed CPD courses on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

4. Digital credentials

A digital badge and PDF certificate is emailed to every participant every time they complete a CPD course.

Reward and motivate

Key to any CPD programme is motivating learners and recording their achievements. All staff get a digital 'badge' and printable certificate for completing each CPD course.
