ECT digital guide for 2021

The first steps in your teaching career can be both exciting as well as daunting and with the additional challenge of changes due to the pandemic, it may feel overwhelming. We’ve spoken to many ECTs over the last couple of weeks, most of whom feel confused on how to approach securing a ECT role in September.

We have compiled a comprehensive guide full of tips and information which will hopefully answer many questions that as an ECT you may have to successfully navigate your way to finding the employment you want including supply teaching.

Now is the peak time for schools to recruit ECTs so we have included tips on cover letters, online and telephone interviews, interview questions etc.

Also included is lots of information for when you are ready to start work, such as your first day, preparation, teaching tips and safeguarding. You can take a look for yourself here and do tell other ECTs about our very useful guide.
