Appropriate Body Services

The DRET Teaching School Hub provides appropriate body service for any ECT commencing their two year induction. The appropriate body will work with schools throughout the two-year induction, to assess that the ECT has been given their statutory entitlements, and that the ECT has performed suitably against the teaching standards. We will also quality assure that the ECT has been given an induction programme that it rooted in the Early Career Framework (ECF).

The appropriate body recommends that schools follow a fully funded induction programme for their ECTs.
