Investing in early career teachers (ECTs) has never been more important. Following Initial Teacher Training, our Early Career Professional Development Programme (ECPDP) offers the essential specialist support needed to improve practice, build confidence and resilience, leading to better job satisfaction and retention.
Education Development Trust (EDT) has been delivering training for the School-Led Tutoring route of the National Tutoring Programme since 2021, and recently expanded its training offer for the 2022-23 academic year. This helps to ensure that all tutors employed by schools have the right skills and knowledge to provide high-quality tuition to their pupils, and that schools understand how to embed tutoring effectively within their own contexts.
Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has released a report of their findings from a three-year evaluation of the Schools Partnership Programme. This is one of the largest school improvement evaluations in the UK, looking at the effectiveness and influence of partnership-based peer review.
Small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) are key to making apprenticeships more accessible, especially for disadvantaged young people, but many such companies continue to face barriers to offering these opportunities. Existing research has identified many such barriers, but geographical factors have not previously been considered. In our first working paper, we examine how geography impacts SMEs’ likelihood of offering apprenticeships, with a view to informing effective solutions that will result in more equitable apprenticeship opportunities across the UK.
