Appropriate Body

The Northern Lights Teaching School Hub comprises of a range of strategic partners across Sunderland, South Tyneside, Gateshead and the wider region which provide AB services to meet the needs of our region across all phases and settings. We are school led and as a provider of the Early Career Framework, we have the understanding of the Appropriate Body role in the new education landscape. From September, Appropriate Bodies must now also check that ECT induction has fidelity to the Early Career Framework – as a Hub offering the Early Career Framework we have a full understanding of this role. All schools that offer a statutory induction are required to have an Appropriate Body for their Early Career Teachers (ECTs) to ensure they are accessing all aspects of the Early Career Framework.  

Please see below our core documents.
