Early Career Framework and NQT Induction

Appropriate Body update on NQT induction (added 28/05/2019)

  1. There will be no changes to statutory induction until 2021, so during the roll out, there will be no change for the end of the NQTs' induction – one year.

  2. The 5% additional support will first be available to NQTs in 2021 in Bradford schools which opt-in to the early roll out programme following their successful induction in 2020-21.

  3. As we change from one set of induction regulations to another, there is, as yet, no information on how long the induction will be for part-time, late starters, maternity return teachers etc who begin prior to September 2021 and who will run on post the new regulations. We will continue to monitor this and ask DfE when appropriate.

  4. Statutory Guidance for Induction will change once it has gone through parliament prior to the national 2021 launch. Schools using City of Bradford MDC as the Appropriate Body (AB) will be updated via NQT Manager and we will also ensure that information is available on BSO for those schools which are not using us.

  5. Schools not using Bradford as the AB might need to check with their own AB to see how the changes will be advertised and supported.

(updated 28/05/2019)


If an NQT has QTLS then they are exempt from induction, as their qualification is recognised as QTS equivalent as long as they are still members of the Society for Education and Training (SET) from whom further details can be sought.
