FAQs

The application process

Why are we required to take up references prior to interview?2021-12-07T11:10:18+00:00

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 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, we suggest you ring the Wellington College HR team on 01344 753292 to discuss and agree a plan.  Please note that no offer of employment will be made until all references have been completed and considered satisfactory.
