NQT Appropriate Body Support function

Since autumn 2013, there has been an additional Appropriate Body Support function Service Level Agreement. This support was historically funded centrally, but monies have now been devolved to school budgets and as a result a charge must be levied.

Charges for the Appropriate Body Support function will be collected termly in arrears from participating schools.      

Appropriate Body Support cost for NQT per term: £130 (all schools)

(Schools choosing not to purchase the Appropriate Body Support will be exempt from any of the NQT support functions offered by South Tyneside Council and will need to purchase this function from another appropriate body).
