During departure, the tower issued us a turn. I reached up to adjust the heading while the first officer was flying. He asked for a speed mode, which I selected. We then received an overspd warning for the flaps. The first officer did not ask for flap retraction at retraction altitude and began to accelerate, causing a flap overspd. He is a new first officer. I should have been more aware of what he was doing.
