Can the Appropriate Body reduce the length of the induction Period?

The Director of the AB does have the discretion to reduce the period of induction, only in circumstances where an ECT has, for example, had extensive prior experience of teaching whole classes and there is evidence of documentation and appraisal against the Teacher Standards. Examples of when this may be appropriate are: when a teacher has several years experience of teaching in the independent sector, or has gained QTS via the assessment only route. However, if an ECT wished to serve the whole induction period they must be allowed to do so.
