Yarlside Teaching School Alliance is an Appropriate Body for the registration and formal Statutory Induction process, which provides validation and support of Newly Qualified Primary Teachers.

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs. It is the responsibility of the Appropriate Body to ensure that there is sufficient evidence to support the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher/Principal.

The service that we offer is available to all local authority maintained schools and academies. The main responsibility of the Appropriate Body is to quality assure the NQT induction process. The Appropriate Body must monitor and support, assess and guide to ensure procedures are fair and appropriate.

Yarlside Teaching School Alliance are registering both Primary and Secondary NQT’s.

If you have registered NQTs with YTSA please find attached electronic versions of the documents that you will need for 2017/18.

For all enquiries about how YTSA is working with NQTs, please email : info@yarlsideteachingschool.co.uk

By halting groups of visitors to schools we hope we are demonstrating a duty of care to school staff and pupils as well as the wider communities that they are all part of.
