Registering an NQT or ECT with Lambeth

If you would like to use Lambeth as Appropriate Body
for your NQT's or ECT's induction, please keep reading...

If you would like to register an NQT or ECT with Lambeth, please use the relevant form...

Please note that inductees can only be registered to begin/recommence induction from the start of Term One (September), Term Three (January) or Term Five (April) each year, due to the prescribed training element required in the new ECT induction regulations - in order to streamline processes, this restriction will also apply to NQTs.

If the ECT will be following a Core or school-designed training programme, a copy of the relevant Programme Details Form should also be completed and sent - this only needs to be done once per school for all ECTs starting induction at the same time.


A copy of the information submitted will be emailed to the NQT/ECT and those supporting them on submission and Lambeth will process the registration as soon as possible after receipt.
