Statutory ECT Induction: The Appropriate Body Role

The LA is the Statutory ECT Appropriate Body to a range of institutions, including maintained schools, academies, free schools, other independent schools. The Appropriate Body has the main quality assurance role in the ECT induction process and is also the body which decides whether an ECT has met the Standards to pass the induction period. An ECT cannot start their induction until an agreement has been reached with an Appropriate Body.
