This page explains how the application process works and what you can expect from us at each stage, from applying for a role through to your first day on the job.
Applying for roles
Applying for a role couldn’t be easier – simply complete the application form and attach your CV. Once we have received your application, we will review it against the role criteria in the job description, and evaluate how well your skills and experience match our client’s requirements.
Once we have reviewed all applicants, we will create a shortlist and submit an agreed number of applications to the School. We will let you know whether you are shortlisted or not.

If you are shortlisted, we will provide you with details of the next stages in the selection process. Fortunately we are able to provide feedback to candidates who are not shortlisted, and we will help you with your application for future roles.
We frequently work to short deadlines and so you should be informed of your application status within a few days of the application closing date.
The selection process
Once you have been shortlisted for a role, the final selection process may vary depending on the exact requirements of the role and the client. You will be asked to attend an interview at the School and to teach an observed lesson.
We will confirm the specific selection process with you once you have been shortlisted, and will keep you informed of your progress. We will normally be able to confirm the outcome within a few days of your interview. If you are unsuccessful at interview we will provide you with feedback and will of course consider you for other roles in future.
The offer process
Once you have been identified as the ideal applicant for the role, we will let you know as soon as possible (usually the same day) to confirm your acceptance of the offer. We will also agree your start date and ensure that you have all the information you need to make a success of your role from day one.
Once you have started...
Once you have begun your role, we want to ensure that it meets your expectations and continue to support you.
We will contact you within your first week to ensure that you are settled in, and will continue to contact you regularly throughout your assignment to ensure that it continues to meet your expectations.
