Core Induction Programme (CIP)

Schools delivering their own training using DfE-accredited materials and resources

Some schools may choose to develop their own induction programme using freely available DfE-accredited materials, sometimes referred to as a ‘core induction programme’.

This includes:

  • Self-directed study materials
  • Mentor session guidelines
  • Training session outlines

These materials have been accredited by DfE and quality assured by the Education Endowment Foundation.


Funding will cover time off timetable for early career teachers and mentors, in the second year of induction, paid directly to schools.
