Is Agile Testing a testing model or practice that would be prescribed for Scrum during all phases of development ?

I'm not sure I understand the question.

First, there is not much that is prescribed by Scrum - let alone a software practice like testing, as Scrum isn't a software development process, it's a project management method.

Second, as far as I can tell, there are no phases in Scrum.

Scrum teams need to include all the necessary testing expertise. Scrum teams need to figure out how they are going to gather requirements and make sure they deliver the right functionality. To me, that's going to require some agile testing. Testing and coding are part of one process in agile development, IMO. It's a challenge for the whole team.
