About Us

Stockton-on-Tees Appropriate Body are pleased to offer the administration and management of the statutory regulations for all Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) alongside additional personalised support for schools and NQT Mentors/Tutors (as described within the Statutory Guidance on Induction for newly qualified teachers (England) (Revised April 2018)).

The Appropriate Body formally holds the main quality assurance role in the induction process, however we feel it is important to work in close partnership with those invested in the experiences available in order to successfully complete induction.

The training programme and our additional supporting materials have been specifically developed to meet the needs of Newly Qualified Teachers, schools and mentors throughout the induction process. Support is also offered for RQTs through the mentor accreditation programme and access to our training offer.

We are closely following the development of the Early Career Framework (ECF) which will be implemented in September 2021.  At this point, NQT entitlements will change to include additional expectations of support, ongoing professional development and a reduced timetable for RQTs.  An ‘early roll out’ in the North East of England is planned for September 2020 but is not statutory.  During this early roll out, the current statutory entitlements will still apply.

NQTs, RQTs, schools and mentors are welcome to contact the Appropriate Body at any time throughout the Induction period for support and guidance.
