September 2022 ECTs – Appropriate Body checklist and briefing sessions
This half term is a busy one as schools prepare for a new cohort of ECTs starting in September 2022. Here is a checklist of things that school leaders need to do:
When allocating an Induction Tutor or Mentor it is important to ensure that these colleagues have sufficient capacity to carry out the role effectively. As a guide, for an Induction Tutor, Saffron AB would suggest three hours per half term per ECT, and for a Mentor, an hour per week for each ECT in Year 1 and an hour a fortnight in Year 2.
For schools choosing to use the Saffron AB service, we are running a series of tailored online briefing sessions for:
- Schools who have not had an ECT this year
- New Induction Tutors
- Experienced Induction Tutors
- New ECTs
These online briefing sessions will take please in June, July and September – for full details of the sessions and to book a place, download the booking form at the link below:
