Welcome to the forum! It will take many months for her to calm down a bit. Be patient. Time is on your side. Babies are always skittish. Even beardie babies are! Pay attention to her and give her space when she isn't having it. Be patient patient patient.
Welcome to the forum! I don't know of any tegu breeders in the UK but I'm sure if you poke around a bit you should be able to find someone who would at least know! Are you guys located near a major metropolitan area where you can find local exotic pet shops?
They're usually doing a lot of basking and resting especially after eating. Remember they need to warm up in the morning before being active and hungry. I'd say the behavior you're describing is pretty normal tbh
Handling you're going to have to take day by day sometimes hour by hour. Let the animal tell you when it's in the mood or not. And don't force it if she's not having it that day.
Good plan for feeding but again be fluid enough to adapt to the animal's needs. Keep a log at first so you can...
