Appropriate Body

|

London South Teaching School Hub is an Appropriate Body for Early Career Teachers based in Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. We offer three different levels of Appropriate Body Service.

All schools that offer statutory induction are required to register their ECTs with an Appropriate Body. This service is separate to the Early Career Framework programme they are completing.

Induction Tutors should register each new ECT with London South's Appropriate Body Service on ECT Manager. For guidance on how to register your ECTs on ECT Manager, follow this link.

Important changes to Appropriate Body services from September 2023

From September 2023, local authorities and the NTA will no longer be able to register new ECTs with their AB services. Instead, any new ECTs in Lambeth, Lewisham or Southwark schools will need to be registered with the Appropriate Body Services through London South TSH.

Local authorities will be able to complete the induction for any existing ECTs registered with them until the end of August 2024.
