Appropriate Body Service


Flying High Teaching School Hub provides the Appropriate Body service for Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City schools. 

We provide independent quality assurance of the statutory induction for early career teachers (ECTs) to ensure schools are providing adequate support and that their assessment is fair and consistent. 

At the heart of our remit sit Early Career Teachers, therefore, those utilising the Full Induction Programme route ensure both the ECF and Appropriate Body elements of their induction are joined up and coherant. This helps the induction experience and learning to be maximised in order to gain the experience, confidence and resilience needed to go forward into their future career.
