How to Apply:
If you wish to apply to any of the positions at Bosworth then you will need to fill in one of the following application forms:
- Teaching Staff Application Form [doc]
- Support Staff Application Form [doc]
- Volunteer Staff Application Form [doc]
Completed application forms should be emailed to Carly Harper (Strategic Operations Manager), with the name of the post you are applying for in the subject at: firstname.lastname@example.org
References must be obtained before any decision to appoint is acted upon. Information should be sought from referees in writing, asking specific questions relating to the selection criteria for the particular post. (This will normally be covered by the college’s reference pro-forma.) The college should normally ask specific questions on disciplinary record, absence rates and salary on leaving and a pro-forma will normally be supplied. Offers of employment should be made subject to satisfactory references but in certain circumstances a provisional offer of appointment might be made on the basis of detailed verbal references in advance of a written reference. (See below)
Confidentiality of references under the 1998 Data Protection Act
Written references will be regarded as potentially disclosable to the subject on request or as part of a debrief where information contained therein has been a determining factor in an appointment. Where references are marked ‘strictly confidential’ then permission will be sought from the referee, however, marking references “strictly confidential” does not necessarily eliminate the possibility that they may be disclosed under the terms of the act. The information provided on the college’s reference pro-forma cannot be regarded as confidential to the subject.
Taking up references for external candidates
Before offering employment to a person not employed immediately by the Academy it is essential to obtain at least two references. It is essential that one of the references should always be from a formal line manager (Headteacher in the case of teaching staff) of the person at the most recent employer. Normally the second reference should also be from a line manager at a different level rather than peers or colleagues. It is not recommended that a reference from a personal friend is used – in cases where an applicant has insufficient work experience, references should normally be sought from individuals who have had a reasonable period of professional interaction with the applicant – for example, as teacher or course tutor. A verbal reference may be considered as part of the selection process but no offer of employment can be made without the receipt of a satisfactory written reference.
