A few notes for schools regarding NQT induction

NQT registrations

  • Schools should ensure they have registered their NQTs with the Appropriate Body as soon as possible now that term has started. Registrations for Bradford Appropriate Body are completed on NQT Manager

Amendment to statutory guidance

  • There has been an amendment by the DfE to the information about absences related to Covid-19. These absences will not contribute towards the absence limit that would extend statutory induction. This amendment will now extend to September 2021

  • DfE information for schools NQTs about induction and Covid-19 can be found at this site




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.
