The Early Career Teachers programme is funded by the Department for Education. All state-funded schools offering statutory induction will receive additional funding to deliver the ECF reforms.
The funding will cover:
- 5% off timetable in the second year of induction for all early career teachers to undertake induction activities, including training and mentoring.
- Mentors for early career teachers in the second year of induction - this is based on 20 hours of mentoring across the academic year.
|Funding (year 2)||England
(excluding the London Area)
|Rounded cost per Early Career Teacher||£1,200||£1,500||£1,400||£1,300|
|Rounded cost per mentor||£900||£1,100||£1,000||£900|
Funding is calculated by taking the average salary of mentors and early career teachers, split by region, and uses the hourly rate to calculate a total funding figure.
This data will be collected through the school workforce census. State schools undertaking statutory induction will receive a single payment for their early career teachers and mentors in the summer of the second year of induction.
Schools using a DfE-funded, provider-led programme will also receive additional funding for mentor backfill for time off timetable for training, as follows:
