The appointment of an Appropriate Body (AB) is a statutory requirement for the induction period of Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs). The AB makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the teachers' standards on the recommendation of the Head Teacher/Principal.
Cheadle Hulme High School, lead of the Altius Alliance, has decided to act as an Appropriate Body for the statutory induction of NQTs from September 2014.
This service will also include an opportunity for Induction Tutors to attend an annual briefing in the summer term and there will also be a briefing in early September for NQTs to make them aware of their entitlements but more importantly in taking responsibility for managing their own induction and professional development.
The cost for the service will be £285 per NQT (£95 per term).
