Statutory Induction of Newly Qualified Teachers 2017/2018

St. Patrick’s RC High School, the lead of the St. Patrick’s Teaching School Alliance, is an Appropriate Body (AB) for the professional induction of newly qualified teachers (NQTs) for secondary schools.

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs and the Appropriate Body makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher.

It is the responsibility of schools to ensure that they commit appropriate resources to the induction of newly qualified teachers. It is the responsibility of the Appropriate Body to ensure quality of this induction provision. As the Appropriate Body our service includes the administration, quality assurance and supporting & monitoring of NQTs.
