Primary ECT Pedagogy Programme 2021-22 (incl. AB and ECF Full Induction Programme)

Billericay Teaching Alliance (Billericay TA) are continuing to offer our highly effective pedagogy training for 2021-22! As well as providing key pedagogical knowledge, skills development and essential contextual priorities, it supports ECTs in their first year towards evidencing the Teachers’ Standards which they will be assessed against. The ECF Full Induction Programme (ECF FIP) follows a different framework linked to the Teachers’ Standards
