Appropriate Body Service 2023/24
Generate Teaching Hub provides an Appropriate Body service to assess an Early Career Teacher’s (ECT) induction; we report on progress for each teacher to the Teacher Regulation Agency. The Appropriate Body service is separate from the Early Career Framework programme. The Appropriate Body service provides an assessment of a new teacher’s suitability to teach. The Early Career Framework provides a development package to support a new teacher. Schools are required to ensure new teachers engage with BOTH services.
New For September 2023
For September 2023, we are using ECT Manager to support schools who use our AB service. ECT Manager is a paperless ECT management system which allows you to register your ECTs, submit Progress Reviews and Assessments online and track each teacher’s induction assessment process.
Open this brief PowerPoint presentation and listen to Deborah Sharples, Hub Manager explain how to register an Early Career Teacher starting in your school from September 2023.
