Appropriate Body for Early Career Teacher Induction 2021-22

Appropriate Body

We are delighted to inform you that in September 2021 we will be continuing to provide Appropriate Body (AB) Services for all Early Career Teachers (ECTs, formerly known as NQTs) across our area. From September 2021, we will cease to be the named ‘lead school’ published on the Teacher Regulation Agency (TRA), as this regulatory role will be assumed by the Harris Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub (Harris TS Hub) due to DfE reform, and the changes from Teaching Schools, to Teaching School Hubs. 

The DfE have published new DfE Appropriate Body Guidance for schools that can be located here. This outlines statutory roles and responsibilities for all stakeholders involved in induction, and indeed regularity in relation to monitoring and reporting schedules. In addition, there is guidance for Induction and the Early Career Framework. This outlines three approaches schools can choose from: The Full Induction, funded, provider-led Programme, quality-assured by Ofsted; The Core Induction Programme delivered by schools using DfE accredited materials and The School Induction Programme based on the ECF quality-assured by the Appropriate Body. As usual, the Appropriate Body services will incur a cost to schools, these will be communicated following the published guidance.  Costs for the two-year AB service typically will be between £400 and £625 depending on the programme chosen. 

As a part of this collaboration with Harris TS Hub we are delighted to have formalised a delivery partnership with our other current ABs across the hub region, namely: Billericay TSA (Essex), South Essex TSA (Southend) and Thurrock Primary TSA (Thurrock). We believe this collaboration will provide an outstanding offer of AB services, mechanisms and support. Furthermore, we will be using a first-class online portal known as NQT Manager, which again will be modified to reflect the changes mentioned above.

Early Career Teachers

All ECTs embarking on Induction this September will engage in a 2-year Early Career Framework (ECF) programme of professional development fully funded through the Harris TS Hub for both ECTs and their Mentors. Whilst the ECF programme is not separately assessed, it will support ECT development towards meeting the Teachers’ Standards within this 2-year period. Harris TS Hub AB will be leading on this entitlement for all ECTs, and we expect to play a key role in its delivery. Part of the AB role is to quality assure ECF professional development ensuring that all ECTs have access to, and are following a comprehensive programme, in line with DfE expectations that are checked by the Appropriate Body for fidelity.

Welcome and Introduction to AB & ECF Engagement Event

Information events have been organised for 29th April. There will be two sessions available to select: 10am to 11am and  3.30pm to 4.30pm.  The purpose of these sessions is to ensure all school colleagues are fully informed with the DfE reforms in relation to AB and ECF. Colleagues will also have an opportunity to ask questions.  This event is appropriate for Headteachers, Induction Coordinator/Tutors, Teaching and Learning/CPD Senior Leaders. If you would like to attend this event, please complete this registration form or email Martha Lopez, Teaching School Hub Administrator on ChaffordTSHub-Harris@hotmail.com.

 

David Struthers, Director of SETSA and Mark Beyer-Woodgate, Director of Harris Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub
