The Appropriate Body is required to undertake a fidelity check if you are following the Core Induction Programme or the DIY Induction Programme. This will involve the ECT team visiting school to look at the structure and content of the programme you are offering your ECT(s). This is to assure the school, the Appropriate Body, the DfE and the TRA that the core elements of the induction programme are scheduled/sequenced in an appropriate way.
The length of the visit will vary depending on whether you are following Core or DIY. Visits to schools offering the DIY programme will be longer.
An example of the fidelity check paperwork is available here.
The ECT team will contact you well in advance of the visit to support you with your preparations.
