Appropriate Body for NQTs

We are able to offer our support as an Appropriate Body for the induction of Newly Qualified Teachers, as is a statutory requirement for all NQTs during their induction year.


In our role as Appropriate Body, GHF TSA will:


  • Register the NQT with Gipsy Hill Federation Teaching School Alliance and the Teaching Regulation Agency;

  • Maintain records and assessment (IP) report

  • Refer to reflections and evidence from the NQT mentor and Headteacher when making the final decision as to whether or not the NQT’s performance against the Teaching Standards is satisfactory;

  • Notify the Teaching Regulation Agency of the decision;

  • Provide a named contact and system of support and guidance for the NQT.


All of our services as an Appropriate Body are informed by the DfE ‘Induction for Newly Qualified Teachers: Statutory guidance for appropriate bodies, headteachers, school staff and governing bodies’ (revised April 2018).

The cost for GHF TSA Appropriate Body support and administration is £195 per NQT.
