Registering for the ECT Programme

We are delighted that you wish to register your Early Career Teacher, their Mentor, and your school or trust's Induction Lead with us for the Early Career Teachers programme. We want to make registration as straight forward as possible.

We have outlined the registration process for you in a step-by-step guide below.

  • Step 1 - Please ensure you sign up to the DfE portal.  As the headteacher you will need to register your name as the induction coordinator/tutor on the DfE portal.  All schools have received an email from the DfE to complete this process.  If your school has not received the email, please contact
  • Once you have registered the name of the Induction tutor, you will be able to choose the FIP (full induction programme) with Ambition Institute.  See the screenshot below for the DfE portal.

  • Step 2 - You will need to complete your Hub participant information form (below) and return this to us at This form submission triggers an automatic email from Ambition Institute asking for you to register with the 'Myambition' portal. You, your mentors and ECTs will all need to register with 'ambition' and complete the 'ECF onboarding form' so you have full access to the 'myambition' portal and all the training materials.  You must all complete this individually.  Please note - the automatic email from ambition institute sometimes goes to 'junk' folders.  Please ensure you add and to your safe senders list to avoid this occurring. 
  • Step 3 - You will also need to register your school and your ECT's with an Appropriate Body using this link  Appropriate Bodies ( You can select the C&K Hub, Kirklees LA or Calderdale LA as your Appropriate Body.
