Welcome to the Sussex TSA NQT Induction Service

The NQT Induction Service is built on the foundations of the Local Authority and is now 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. The Appropriate Body provides a core CPD package and additional professional development opportunities 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 comprehensive support package for school leadership and NQT Induction. We aim to provide your school and NQT with a supportive, relevant and school-led package of provision.


Core NQT package

The 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 Core NQT package continues to provide the high level of support and insight provided in previous years. It also provides three CPD conferences for every NQT.  The events will include a welcome conference in October 2019 which has a strong focus on resilience and wellbeing strategies.
