Your Early Career Teacher (ECT) Survival Guide

By Mark Oliver on 20 September, 2021

Congratulations! You’re Early Career Teacher! As a fully-fledged teacher, this is the year you find your feet and what better way to do it than on supply.

All the hard work has been done and now it’s time to head into the classroom.  Don’t worry if you haven’t secured that full-time job yet, working as a supply teacher with Class Act Teaching Services will give you great opportunities.

You’ll experience a whole range of schools and depending on your preferences, a whole range of key stages.

Newly Qualified Teacher to Early Career Teacher

This year, Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) became Early Career Teacher (ECT). As the first year of ECTs in the classroom, you may find From NQT to ECT useful.

Supply teaching is a great way to get your “foot in the door” with schools.  Being a supply teacher can often lead to being offered a role within a school as they arise.

Schools have been very welcoming and friendly.  Class Act are incredibly supportive of me”

– Chloe
