Appropriate Body

Register With Us

If your school employs a NQT or ECT, you must register them with an Appropriate Body. The Appropriate Body will provide independent quality assurance of the ECT's two-year induction, and this will include that the ECT is receiving a programme of support and training based on the ECF.

Swindon and Wiltshire Teaching School Hub are able to offer Appropriate Body (AB) services. Please click here to see a summary of our services.
