References will only be sought for shortlisted candidates. It is our policy to obtain references prior to interview. If you have concerns regarding this, please contact us.
The first referee provided must be your present or most recent employer, unless you have not been in employment before. If you are not currently working with children but have done so in the past, your second referee must be that employer.
Referees will be asked about any disciplinary offences relating to children (whether current or time expired), whether you have been the subject of any substantiated child protection concerns and, if so, the outcome of these investigations.
