Interviews and clearance


If you are invited for an interview you must expect to be interviewed by more than one person. The panel will ask questions that are intended to allow you to expand on your application and to demonstrate the extent to which you meet the requirements of the post.

Applicants selected for interview will be required to produce certificates, diplomas etc, referred to in their applications.


For all posts requiring a DBS check, it is the Company's policy that two references are requested for all short-listed candidates prior to interview. For all posts that do not require a DBS check one reference is requested for the preferred candidate after interview. 

If you are unemployed, former employers should be nominated as referees and if you have never been employed, your Head of School or senior teacher may be used. References must be given by someone who is qualified to give such opinions i.e. not personal friends.

The Company reserves the right to contact any former employer, or other appropriate person, where it is deemed that some further investigation is reasonably required prior to making an appointment. 

It will not be acceptable to nominate members of your family as referees, unless you have been directly employed by the relative and the reference is being given by the relative in their capacity as an employer.

Medical Clearance
