Early Career Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

This qualitative research by the NFER looks at evidence on the development needs of early career teachers (ECTs) and effective practice in meeting needs. It explores the support required by teachers in their early careers and good practice in CPD for early career teachers. The study revealed that new teachers commonly experience 'practice shock' when beginning to teach and need support from colleagues to help them acclimatise to the reality of work in schools.
