Star Institute offers a professional ‘Appropriate Body’ service that supports the induction of Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) in all schools and settings. The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period for all NQTs. It is the Appropriate Body that makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher/Principal in the school where they work. Our service provides guidance, advice and training relating to the induction process and quality assurance of your NQT provision.
