It transpires that the DfE stopped sign up to the Early Career Framework at October half term. Nor will there be an opportunity to sign up in January/Easter. The reasons for this have not been made clear as yet.
Although you cannot now sign up to an ECF provider the ECF materials are free and available online. You may wish to use some of the materials as part of your CPD programme as you see fit.
If you need any support with NQTs please contact Dave Cookson.
