Appropriate Body Registration

Appropriate Body Registration

To register your school and your ECT with our Appropriate Body (AB) Service, click here:

Calderdale and Kirklees Teaching School Hub - ECT Paperless Induction and Assessment Management System (

All qualified teachers who are employed in a relevant school in England must, by law, have completed an induction period satisfactorily, subject to specified exemptions.

Independent quality assurance of statutory induction, through the role of the Appropriate Body, is important both for ensuring that schools provide adequate support for their ECTs, and that their assessment is fair and consistent across all institutions.

An Appropriate Body has the main quality assurance role within the induction process. The Appropriate Body is responsible for checking that headteachers/principals have put in place an induction programme for the ECT and ensuring that this programme of support is clearly based on the ECF.

Please refer to the AB Hub Guide for further information, including costs and the different ECF programmes available.
