Appropriate Body

We are invested in Leeds

From September 2021, Leeds Teaching School Hub has delivered the statutory requirements as an Appropriate Body for Early Career Teachers. Our responsibility is to meet local need within Leeds, as all schools must register with an Appropriate Body, to ensure that statutory entitlements for Early Career Teachers are met. In addition to this, Appropriate Bodies have had an increased responsibility from September 2021 to ensure that the Early Career Framework is being delivered through a programme of support.


The Leeds Teaching School Hub has built on the successful practices already in place from our work as an Appropriate Body at The Morley Academy. We continue to be committed to ensuring that our approach is diligent so that all Early Career Teachers are fairly and consistently assessed against the Teachers’ Standards and have experienced the best possible support and training to allow them to meet the requirements. The Appropriate Body provides independent quality assurance of the ECT’s two-year induction.


From September 2022 we will be using the ECT Manager online portal for smooth, secure, paperless management of the Appropriate Body service.
