    Hampshire Assure - Appropriate body function   

    All schools are statutorily required to appoint an appropriate body to undertake quality assurance in respect of the induction provision. 
    Alongside training for induction tutors within school to ensure that the process of induction is clear, Hampshire’s appropriate body supports schools to navigate the paperwork associated with induction, through access to an online platform and best practice resources. Advice and guidance is available to schools in respect of induction regulations and guidance on concerns over progress. Schools not undertaking the full induction route for the Early Career Framework will be subject to an additional fidelity check charge in accordance with national guidance. 
    Hampshire Assure is provided through Education Personnel Services in partnership with HIAS – this unique blend enables schools to benefit from expertise and guidance from schools HR practitioners, complemented with support from school improvement professionals in the moderation and training.

    Hampshire Advance - Hampshire bespoke programme

    Our Advance option provides additional bespoke programmes, based on the core programme of CPD that has historically been highly valued by Hampshire schools at all phases. For ECTs in primary and primary special schools a developmental programme is available over the two-year period with a blended model of full day and shorter sessions, bringing ECTs together in local areas to support them in building a professional network of colleagues in schools nearby. 
    At secondary there is subject specific training, with six sessions over two years which will develop their knowledge of strong curriculum planning and delivery, and support the development of effective practitioners. The sessions will also enable colleagues to build their professional networks.
