All state-funded schools offering statutory induction will receive additional funding to deliver the ECF reforms.
The funding will cover:
- 5% off timetable in the second year of induction for all early career teachers to undertake induction activities including training and mentoring
- Mentors for early career teachers in the second year of induction – this is based on 20 hours of mentoring across the academic year
|Funding (year 2)||England (excluding the London Area)||Inner London Area||Outer London Area||Fringe Area|
|Rounded cost per Early Career Teacher||£1,200||£1,500||£1,400||£1,300|
|Rounded cost per mentor||£900||£1,100||£1,000||£900|
Funding is calculated by taking the average salary of mentors and early career teachers, split by region, and uses the hourly rate to calculate a total funding figure.
Schools using a DfE-funded, provider-led programme (FIP) will also receive additional funding for mentor backfill for time off timetable for training, as follows:
|Mentor’s unit cost (years 1 and 2 time off timetable for training)||England (excluding the London area)||Inner London area||Outer London area||Fringe area|
|36h cost (2 years of training)||£1576.10||£1929.24||£1737.14||£1623.24|
