How Does NQT Induction Work for British Schools Overseas?
A British School Overseas (BSO) which is inspected by a DfE approved inspectorate against the BSO Standards and is a member of a DfE accredited association can appoint NQTs from the UK and support them through their induction. This must, however, be in association with an Appropriate Body such as the NQT Induction & Support team.
There are some restrictions, and these are as follows. A school overseas may not provide induction if they:
- have not received a recent inspection (within the last 3 years) from an approved inspectorate
- have received an inspection judgement that has not satisfactorily met all the standards and categories
- are not members of an accredited association such as COBIS, BSME, FOBISIA and NABSS.
