Products: Appropriate Body Service


Dedicated support for ECTs, mentors and induction tutors

The Department for Education has confirmed that Appropriate Body services will now only be provided by Teaching School Hubs. As a Local Authority, Hackney Education is no longer able to act as an Appropriate Body.

ECTs who have already registered with us during the Autumn term in 2022 can continue their induction with our Appropriate Body service for their second year in 2023-24. 

New ECTs will need to be registered with an Appropriate Body Service of their choice. For those who would like to stay local, Hackney Education has been working in partnership with the East London Teaching School Hub (ELTSH). Find out more about ELTSH’s Appropriate Body offer.

Hackney Education and ELTSH will be on hand to support any schools through this transition period. ELTSH’s Appropriate Body Service is already the largest local provider and they are working collegiately and transparently with our team to support a smooth transition. 

They are also working with the DfE and national Teaching School Hubs network to determine how we can work collegiately with local partners to retain local knowledge and expertise when they become the sole AB local provider from September 2024.

Find out more about what ELTSH is doing to support our transitioning schools.
