Welcome to the East Sussex TSA NQT Induction Service

The NQT Induction Service is built on the foundations of the Local Authority and will now be led by a partnership of Teaching Schools. The statutory part of the service will now be managed from St Richard’s Catholic College which has been an Appropriate Body since 2015 in an Essentials package. The additional professional development opportunities will be provided through Teaching Schools and others.

The key stakeholders in the partnership are:

  • St Richard’s Catholic College
  • Robsack Wood Primary Academy
  • St Marks CEP
  • Beacon Academy
  • Sabden Teaching School
  • Newick CEP



The partnership offers schools a range of provision packages to best suit their needs. We aim to provide your school and NQT with a supportive, relevant and school-led package of provision.


Essential NQT package

The Essential NQT package provides for the core activities of an NQT appropriate body with additional support and core professional development. It gives each school access to the NQT Manager online system for NQT management, tracking the progress of the NQT and completing their year successfully. The system also provides a single point of access for communication. NQT Manager training resources and support are available to all schools.

The Essential NQT package continues to provide the high level of support and insight provided by Alan Taylor in previous years. It also provides four CPD events for every NQT.  The events will include a welcome conference on September 27th 2018 which has a strong focus on resilience and wellbeing strategies.
