The information below outlines what happens at the end of induction ...
When Lambeth receives a final assessment report, recommending that the NQT be considered as having successfully completed induction, Lambeth will (in all but the most extreme of cases) agree with the school's judgement and process the report with that recommendation in mind.
No other paperwork is required from schools or NQTs for Lambeth to be able to complete this process.
If it is likely that the school's recommendation will be anything other than successful completion, this will have been discussed beforehand - remember that the recommendation made cannot come as a surprise to any of the parties involved.
Once Lambeth have processed the report, you, your Induction Tutor, Induction Co-Ordinator (if you have one) and Headteacher will be emailed to notify you that Lambeth will be recommending to the NCTL that you be considered as having successfully completed induction.
You will also receive a letter from Lambeth, stating that that is our intention - this letter has no legal standing, but it is hoped that future employers etc. will accept this as an interim measure until you are able to supply a copy of your induction certificate.
Notifying the NCTL
Once the deadline for receipt of final assessment reports has passed, Lambeth will then build the return that has to be made to the NCTL, notifying them of those that have successfully completed induction.
This return will then be made online to the NCTL; their system will process the return overnight and change the status of your entry on their database from 'Completing Induction' to 'Pass'.
You will then be able to log into the Teacher Services Database and access your completion of induction certificate.
Any NQT for whom Lambeth has not received a final assessment report by the deadline for return cannot be included in that term's return to the NCTL, and will be included in the return following receipt.
