Appropriate Body

Home/Our Offer/Appropriate Body

Thames Gateway are an ECT Appropriate Body, working with our current, and growing number of partnership schools we are delighted to be able to present an offer that draws on our expertise in teacher development; our exceptional administrative support and our established body of school to school support partners.

Thames Gateway Teaching School Hub can provide appropriate body services for any ECT starting their two year induction. We will work with schools throughout the two year teacher induction to ensure that the Early Career Teacher (ECT) had been given their statutory entitlements, and that the ECT has met the teaching standards. We will also monitor the delivery of the induction programme and ensure that it has followed the Early Career Framework.

Thames Gateway Teaching School Hub recommends that schools follow a fully funded induction program with one of the 6 national providers. Our appropriate body (AB) service for completing the full induction programme is £150 per year per ECT; £300 per ECT for the full two years. We are able to offer AB work for schools wishing to follow their own ECT based programme with or without DfE accredited materials and are happy to discuss costs associated with either of these options. Please email enquiries@TGTSH.org.uk for more information.
