NQT Induction Programme

Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, the lead school of the Alliance for Learning, is an Appropriate Body for the professional induction of newly qualified teachers (NQTs).

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs and the Appropriate Body makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher.

The Alliance for Learning offers a comprehensive induction package, which includes two highly acclaimed NQT conferences, for all schools with NQTs who commence employment during the academic year 2016-17. This package is designed to support schools in the induction process and enable all NQTs to be clearly assessed against the Teachers’ Standards.

It is the responsibility of schools to ensure that they commit appropriate resources to the induction of newly qualified teachers. It is the responsibility of the Appropriate Body to ensure quality of this induction provision. As the Appropriate Body our service includes the administration, quality assurance and supporting & monitoring of NQTs.


£350.00 per person (which includes two NQT Conferences)
