Register with us

If your school employs a NQT or early career teacher (ECT), you must register them with an Appropriate Body (AB). The Appropriate Body will provide independent quality assurance of the ECT's two-year induction, and this will include that the ECT is receiving a programme of support and training based on the ECF.Central London Teaching School Hub will be able to act as an AB.
