About the role
Education Development Trust are inviting applications for experienced facilitators to work on the Early Roll Out of the Early Career Professional Development Programme which is based upon the Early Career Framework starting in September 2020. The duration of the programme is two years.

The Early Career Framework states that “teachers are the foundation of the education system – there are no great schools without great teachers”. All teachers are entitled to and deserve high-quality professional development throughout their careers. This is especially true for teachers in the early stages. It is essential that early career teachers develop the knowledge, practices and working habits that will support them to be both effective teachers but lead to more fulfilment and greater professional success. 

Alongside schools and Sheffield Hallam University, Education Development Trust has developed an Early Career Professional Development Programme based upon the Early Career Framework to provide this high-quality, structured support for early career teachers and their mentors.
We will be delivering this programme to schools in Manchester, Bradford and Doncaster, and across the Opportunity North East (ONE) and, funded by the Department for Education, our facilitators will help to deliver both face to face workshops and webinars to both Early Career Teachers and their mentors.
