DFE Teacher Development Webinar on Thursday 7 July

Posted on: 21st Jun 2022

Teachers are the foundation of the education system – there are no great schools without great teachers. That is why the Department for Education (DfE) is focused on supporting the professional development we give to our teachers and leaders. We want every child to have an excellent teacher, and for every teacher to feel fulfilled and supported in their role.

On Thursday 7 July, the DfE will host a webinar to share more information about how the department is supporting teachers at every stage of their career through the Golden Thread, covering Initial Teacher Training (ITT), the Early Career Framework reforms (ECF) and National Professional Qualifications (NPQs).

Join the webinar to discover how to support staff at all levels and access the wide-ranging support which is available from the department to improve staff experiences and ultimately improve pupil outcomes.

This webinar is suited to headteachers, executive leaders, senior leaders, governors, finance managers and other roles which manage strategic decisions around teaching, learning, personnel, and finance.

The webinar will cover:

  • An overview of what the Golden Thread is, and the high-quality, ongoing training opportunities which are included.
  • The benefits of helping to train the next generation of teachers by hosting ITT trainees in your schools, and the support which is available to you.
  • The advantages of the DfE-funded provider-led ECF based programmes, what we are doing to improve their implementation and delivery, and how we are supporting schools, ECTs and mentors to understand them.
  • The NPQs which are available to staff across the country, the unprecedented support which is available, and how to access the qualifications.
