First Second Third Forth Fifth

Expression of Interest Form  

(To be completed by schools who have not previously worked with Inspire Learning TSH NW)  

Dear Colleague  

 Thank you for your expression of interest in Inspire Learning NW Teaching School Hub delivering the Early Career Framework (ECF) for your school.  

The programme will be delivered in partnership with UCL Institute of Education who are one of the DfE approved national training providers.  

In order to confirm places for your school this September we require confirmation that you intend to work with us for the delivery of the ECF programme.  

 As you may be aware, the Department of Education have contacted all schools requesting their registration on the DfE Online Teacher CPD Service platform and selection of their chosen delivery pathway for the ECF Programme.  

 If your school has not already registered, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible! 

The invitation will have been sent to the email address(es) registered against the school in GIAS (Get Information About Schools). This is usually an office@, admin@ or head@ email address.  

In order to access the fully funded programme it is important to select the ‘Approved Training Provider’ option on the DfE platform. 

At this stage it is not possible to select the name of the provider you wish to work with. This process is handled separately once we receive your confirmation which will be communicated to both UCL Institute of Education and the DfE.   

The DfE platform will then be updated to show you have selected UCL as your provider. In due course schools will be asked to update the system with the names of Early Career Teachers and their mentors.  

In order to commence this process we would be grateful if you could respond to this email confirming your intent to work with us on the ECF programme and provide/confirm the following information:  

  • School URN:  
  • School Name:  
  • School Address & Postcode:  
  • Induction Tutor Contact Details (Email & Telephone):  
  • ECT names and school email addresses (if known):  
  • Mentor names and school email addresses:  

 Participation in the programme is subject to the availability of DfE funding. 

Best wishes 

Inspire Learning TSH NW
