In recent years there’s been a shift in how we nurture teachers at the beginning of their career journeys, so how has a ‘golden thread’ approach to training Early Career Teachers helped solve the teacher retention equation?
Two experts driving the Early Career Framework that’s providing support to new teachers join Tony McAleavy on Brighter Futures this week: Samantha Twiselton OBE, Director of the Sheffield Institute of Education, and our own Dr Nicky Platt, Lead Education Advisor.
We break down the discourse around research that’s informing these vital frameworks, how to encourage more mentors to engage with the Early Career Framework programme, and where international schools can implement a similarly effective ‘golden thread’.
This episode covers:
Creating pathways for young people to bring career aspirations to life is an essential part of their educational journey, and one in which we’re seeing a positive shift.

If we consider the specific needs of genders in the delivery of education as we do with other factors such as disability, then the benefits of gender-responsive education can be felt by all.
We discuss the shifting paradigm in professional development, a growing need to formalise comms strategies between head teachers & parents/guardians, and how ‘Leaders of Learning’ in Rwanda are collaboratively upskilling fellow educators in their local area.
