Under the latest Keeping Children Safe In Education 2021 statutory guidelines for schools and Colleges, and as a regulated environment, we are required to take up references on all short listed candidates prior to interview, and explore any issues as part of the interviewing process.  For both teaching and teaching support staff, this is a mandatory requirement.

For College staff, whilst again it is a mandatory requirement, if a short listed candidate is concerned about their current employer finding out about their intention to leave sooner than they would like, please email us at the time of application on hr@wellingtoncollege.org.uk with justification on why we are not to contact your references.  Please note that no offer of employment will be made until all references have been completed and considered satisfactory.
