Cygnus Teaching School Alliance

Register your NQTs for Cygnus AB Service

 If you would like to register your NQTs with the Cygnus Appropriate Body, please follow the instructions below, or contact for more information.




Application for NQT Services 

Schools should complete the online booking form available here, or by email from as soon as they know they will be employing an NQT.  Cygnus will confirm agreement to act as the Appropriate Body by authorisation of the registration of NQT(s) on NQT Manager.  

NQT Manager 

Cygnus uses ‘NQT Manager’, an online NQT support and induction management system.  On receipt of the booking form, Cygnus will create or update the school’s account.  If it is a new account, the Headteacher will receive an email from the NQT Manager website with their username and password.  Occasionally school’s email accounts move this email into the ‘junk/spam’ folder, so if you do not receive this email please look there first, before contacting Cygnus for assistance.   If a school has previously registered with Cygnus the existing account remains live with the same login details. 

NQT Registration 

Schools should register their NQTs on the Cygnus NQT Manager website account as soon as possible.  This option is only available to schools once they have a Cygnus NQT Manager account.
