Excellence and Experience in ECT Induction

All ECTs must have their induction registered with an Appropriate Body. At Thames South TSH our Appropriate Body service will meet the needs of schools from all phases and settings across the hub region and beyond, supporting ECTs during this important period. We will deliver professional guidance and support at every step of the induction process, delivering a service according to the roles and responsibilities as set out in Induction for early career teachers (click here to view).

We work with schools and colleges to ensure that their assessment is fair and consistent to ensure that ECTs have the best chance to meet the Teachers’ Standards at the end of their induction period. We check that the ECT has been given their statutory entitlements and that the induction programme is rooted in the Early Career Framework (ECF). The Appropriate Body recommends that schools follow a fully funded induction programme for their ECT’s. Find out more about our programme partnered with UCL here.

Costs for schools for our Appropriate Body service:

  •  £175.00 per ECT per year.

Please contact us to discuss bespoke costs for fidelity checks for schools following a Core Induction Programme or a School Designed Induction Programme.
