ECT Resources - Appropriate Body selection and ECT registration

Back to introduction 



All schools are required to select an Appropriate Body (AB) to oversee the induction of their ECTs.

This contract must be renewed by all schools each year as part of our QA process.

Schools wishing to use CBMDC as the Appropriate Body now register this intent, along with their option of Early Career Framework route and provider as necessary.


Charges for the Appropriate Body function for 2021-22 have been amended to accommodate the changes to induction which commence in September 2021. Schools can refer to the document below for more details.

Appropriate Body agreement document 2021-22

Schools should note that if fidelity checks are required for Early Career Framework plans, these will be charged separately as described in the document.

Purchase orders

Purchase order numbers are now required on the registration forms on ECT Manager, however schools must be careful to use only one PO number for ECT induction in the academic year, regardless of how many ECTs there are in school during that time.

The purchase order will be used for each term's invoicing.

Schools are advised to let their business manager or office know of these arrangements in advance.

Separate Purchase Order numbers will be requested following fidelity checks.


All ECT registrations are completed using ECT manager.

Any school without login details wishing to use CBMDC as the Appropriate Body should use the "Register a new co-ordinator" button on ECT manager and then follow the instructions.
