Appropriate Body NQT Package – Support and Administration

This service will provide schools with an Appropriate Body to oversee the Induction of NQTs which remains a statutory duty for all schools, academies and LAs but with funding going directly to schools through the DSG.

Essex is an accredited Appropriate Body and is offering the following service to enable schools/Academies to meet their statutory duties for NQT induction.

This service includes:-

  • All registrations and returns to the NCTL
  • Access to ‘NQT Manager’, our dynamic support portal
  • Telephone and email helpline, including named contact for confidential issues
  • Monitoring of all end of term reports for NQTs
  • Experienced NQT panel which decides on pass, fail or extensions to the Induction period
  • NQT course: What you need to know about statutory NQT induction in Essex
  • NQT co-ordinator/mentor course: ‘Planning for your NQT’s Induction Year’
  • If your NQT is deemed to be vulnerable or struggling, we will provide help in the form of one monitoring visit to include:

 Discussion with the NQT induction tutor to ensure they have carried out all of their statutory roles and have evidence to support their judgement that the NQT is unlikely to meet the Induction standards
 Observation of a lesson(s) delivered by the NQT to quality assure the judgements made by the school
 Discussion with the NQT to listen to their views on the support they have had regarding their statutory entitlement
 Feedback to the NQT and co-ordinator with regard to the next steps to be taken to improve the chance of the NQT meeting the induction standards including making recommendations regarding any additional support that is felt to be needed

The following services are also available for an additional ‘opt in cost’ payable at the start of induction:

  • NQTs and mentors can access our HOW2 CPD tool for ideas on how to improve practice (opt-in fee = £50)

 “It makes your practice more effective, more powerful, more rigorous. Therefore, it improves you as a teacher”– Andrew Steed, Teacher and Coach, Nine Acres Community Primary School

  • Behaviour management course for NQTs (opt-in fee = £50)

And for the third year running we are still able to offer!

  • Another opportunity for NQTs to gain a Postgraduate diploma in Education or full masters with Derby University.


By registering your NQT with us you are agreeing to pay £330 per NQT for one academic year.  You will be invoiced £110.00 termly for each NQT.

NB: There will be an additional £40 administration fee for all Non-UK trained NQT’s and Reduced Induction applications.

Please also note that additional support can be purchased in half day units (£350) and could include for example a second monitoring visit, before the final assessment report is submitted, towards the end of the Induction period.
