Please read through the following guidelines that will help you complete the application form.
Complete all sections of the form.
Make sure the form is tidy and try to avoid mistakes by writing out a version first to make sure you are happy with the information you are providing. Always read through your final version before you send it.
If you require an acknowledgement of your application:
If emailing you must activate a read receipt from your email account.
If sending by post you must enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Please note with limited resources, we cannot verify if we have received your application over the phone.

Ensure you clearly state the job title you are applying for.
In the ‘Employment History’ section you must state why you have left a position.
Always explain any gaps in work history.
Proof of qualifications and membership to professional bodies may be required.
We will take up professional references once you have been interviewed and provisionally offered the post. Please make sure that you have given the full contact details of your referees so that this does not delay processing reference requests. If you have no employer references, we will take up references with named individuals at colleges where you have studied, or people who know you in a professional capacity. Please do not put down family members or people you live with as referees. You will only be confirmed in the post once we are satisfied with the information received from your referees.

You should consider the following:
Applications can only be assessed on the information you provide. You need to clearly demonstrate your capabilities.

This is a particularly fantastic opportunity for those studying towards teaching qualifications.
