Can an NQT who trained at the Chepping View SCITT be registered with the WAM TS Alliance Appropriate Body?

Unfortunately, Chepping View SCITT NQTs cannot be registered with WAM TS Alliance Appropriate Body. This is because it is essential for the Appropriate Body to be impartial in quality assuring the completion of the induction year. As Chepping View Primary Academy is the lead school of WAM TS Alliance, that impartiality could be called into question. We would be happy to help you find an alternative appropriate body service, if your NQT trained at Chepping View SCITT.
