Following successful lobbying led by COBIS and after due Parliamentary process, changes in legislation from 1 September 2012 at regulation level allow qualifying COBIS schools to deliver NQT induction.

Qualifying COBIS schools need to have successfully completed a British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspection by one of the 5 Department for Education (DfE) approved inspectorates.

COBIS welcomes this change in legislation which provides clear DfE recognition that BSO inspected COBIS schools are schools of global quality.
