These requirements are set out in the DfE's statutory guidance for ECT induction and the Early Career Framework (ECF) reforms. Take a look at our ECT induction summary for more support.

The checklist covers what you need to do before, during and after the induction period. 

Note: your appropriate body may have specific procedures or timelines they want you to follow, so be sure to check with them and adapt the checklist to include your additional requirements.
