How to register

New to the ECF with Northamptonshire Teaching School Hub?

Step 1:

Register your ECT and Mentor for the ECF Teach First Programme with the Teaching School Hub (that's us). By registering, we can ensure that the right person gets the right information and support needed to onboard.

Step 2:

Register all ECTs and Mentors on the DfE Manage Training Portal.
Please ensure that ECTs, Mentors and Induction Tutors are all 'linked' together to enable the Mentor and Induction Tutor the 'audit' functionality on the online platform Brightspace.

You can access the Manage Training portal here. Sign in - Manage training for early career teachers (

Step 3

Appoint an Appropriate Body

All ECTs need to be registered for an Appropriate Body service as part of the Statutory Induction. The DfE has recently published changes. From September 2023 only Teaching School Hubs will provide this service.
