Early Career Teacher (ECT)

At The Golden Thread Alliance, we nurture our trainees to help them grow into outstanding teachers. We have a well-established history of training and developing excellent teachers, helping every child to confidently grasp the challenges of tomorrow.  

We are proud to go above and beyond statutory requirements to provide an enriching programme for ECTs. 

Our ECTs benefit from: 

  • An experienced mentor who will guide them through their programme. 
  • An Induction Tutor in school as well as a Senior Induction Tutor from the Trust. 
  • Time off their timetable for high-quality, personalised professional development. 
  • Regular Trust-wide networking opportunities. 
  • A well-established feedback and evaluation system to support trainee development. 

Support does not disappear once your ECT programme is complete! Our Golden Training Offer guarantees ongoing support for all staff throughout their career with us.
