Early Career Programme registration for September 2022 ECTs

The DfE Online Service for September 2022 new Early Career Teacher (ECT) registrations is now open.

Since September 2021, schools have been required to follow the new statutory framework for Early Career Induction. There are two stages to the registration process. Schools will need to:

  • Register their ECTs on the DfE Online Service and choose an induction programme
  • Register their ECTs with an Appropriate Body

Registering ECTs on the Early Career Programme with Saffron TS Hub

Saffron Teaching School Hub delivers the Full Induction Programme (FIP) with Education Development Trust. To find out more about our Early Career Programme and how to register, click here.

Registering ECTs with an Appropriate Body

This is a separate stage from registration on the DfE Online Service for the Early Career Programme. Headteachers and/or Induction Tutors will need to contact the Appropriate Body (AB) directly to register their ECTs.

Within the Saffron TS Hub area there are three ABs:

  • Saffron AB Service
  • Essex LA
  • TES Global
