About Us

Stockton-on-Tees Appropriate Body are pleased to offer the administration and management of the statutory regulations for all Early Career Teachers (ECTs) alongside additional personalised support for schools and ECT Mentors and Induction Tutors (as described within the Statutory Guidance on Induction for newly qualified teachers (England) (March 2021)).

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 provision of information sessions around ECT entitlements, the role of mentors and tutors, and specific report writing training have been designed to provide specific support to those involved in the induction process.  Support is also offered through the mentor accreditation programme and access to our training offer.

The Early Career Framework (ECF) has now been implemented.  ECT entitlements changed with effect from September 2021 and include additional expectations of support, ongoing professional development and a reduced timetable for throughout the two year Induction period.  All ECTs will need to be registered with an Appropriate Body in addition to their access to Early Career Framework entitlements

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