Services For Education will continue to be the Appropriate Body for NQTs on behalf of Birmingham Local Authority in the 2018-19 academic year. 

In the last year we have supported over 500 NQTs in over 300 settings this academic year in all phases of education, and look forward to supporting your school and staff with the induction of newly qualified teachers.  
When you register with us you get a personalised approach to meeting the needs of your school and NQTs. 
  • Benefits of registration with Services For Education:
  • An induction briefing for NQTs in the early autumn term to clearly outline expectations and procedures for the induction year
  • Bespoke induction software for you to manage the induction programme and submit reports and access resources and help
  • School visits when additional support is needed for the NQT, or school member of staff
  • Telephone, email support and help tickets on the online NQT Manager system.
We also offer a range of training opportunities to build the skills and knowledge of your NQTS and their mentors. These can be found in our Teaching and Learning prospectus

NQT Manager Tool

If you have already had NQTs with us this year, you will be familiar with the online NQT Manager tool. Everything that you need will be online, secure in the one place.  As well as accessing your NQTs and assessments, you will have access to documents such as guidance notes and useful links. To access the system, simply visit then select Birmingham from the list of Appropriate Bodies.
