Early Careers Teachers

As a quality school we are always looking to welcome keen and talented ECTs. The school is continuing to expand, and this year we will be making appointments in most subject areas. Our staff work tirelessly to give our students the best possible education and we want to hear from teacher trainees who have the confidence and enthusiasm to join a winning team.


What is the ECT?

Beauchamps High School have chosen to work with Saffron Teaching Hub to ensure that each Early Careers Teacher (ECT) has routine access to targeted support. During your two years as an ECT we aim to consistently maximise individual potential.

Teachers are the foundation of the education system – there are no great schools without great teachers. Teachers deserve high quality support throughout their careers, particularly in those first years of teaching when the learning curve is steepest. Just as with other esteemed professions like medicine and law, teachers in the first years of their career require high quality, structured support in order to begin the journey towards becoming an expert. During induction, it is essential that early career teachers are able to develop the knowledge, practices and working habits that set them up for a fulfilling and successful career in teaching.

How will you be supported?

  • Additional release time
  • A dedicated mentor who you will meet with weekly
  • A teaching area
  • A comprehensive seminar timetable which supports reflection and growth
  • Termly reflection/review points with your induction tutor
  • Off site CPD and peer support sessions
  • Extensive inhouse CPD sessions

Why choose to continue your career with us?

As an expanding school we have appointed a large number of ECTs in recent years and now have two induction tutors invested in your development. They have seen their ECTs mature rapidly into confident and reflective teachers, many of whom have remained to take on positions of responsibility within the school meaning we have a young and innovative staff base at Beauchamps. Our teachers are the key reason for our school’s success.
