This is a service offered to schools to fulfil the statutory role of Appropriate Body for NQT induction and to ensure that the induction period for Newly Qualified Teachers is as successful and rewarding as possible.
As the selected Appropriate Body for NQT induction, Bristol City Council will ensure that all statutory requirements are met, and will provide support and guidance to schools and NQTs throughout the induction period.
There are two key responsibilities which are:
•To assure itself that the schools fully understand and are able to meet their responsibilities for monitoring, support and guidance and for undertaking a rigorous and equitable assessment of their NQTs;
•To decide, in light of the headteacher’s recommendations, whether an NQT has satisfactorily completed their induction period and to then communicate this decision to the NQT, the headteacher and the National College for Teaching and Leadership.
