Using a DfE-funded training provider through your designated Teaching School Hub has been designed to be the simplest option and the one the DfE expect most schools to use. Provision offered by Tudor Grange TSH is fully funded so there are no costs for schools. Lead providers will be inspected by Ofsted so schools can be assured that this training will remain high-quality.
State-funded schools can choose to work with one of 6 providers accredited by DfE. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘full induction programme’.
- Ambition Institute
- Best Practice Network (home of Outstanding Leaders Partnership)
- Capita with lead academic partner the University of Birmingham
- Education Development Trust
- Teach First
- UCL Institute of Education
DfE have chosen these providers by a fair and open procurement process. They will be subject to a quality assurance mechanism through Ofsted inspection to ensure the best support for schools and teachers.
Schools using a DfE-funded provider will not need to provide additional information to an appropriate body to demonstrate they have an ECF-based induction in place. However, they will still require an appropriate body for their early career teachers to ensure other aspects of induction meet statutory requirements.
