The application form
Completing the application form is the first step in the recruitment process which may lead to an interview and the possible offer of a job. It is therefore most important that you complete ALL sections of the application form which are relevant to you as clearly and fully as possible. If you are unable to complete the form, you may ask someone to do it on your behalf. If you have a disability and would prefer to submit your application on tape or in another format – you may do so. Your recording should follow the format of the application form.
Criminal records bureau (CRB) disclosures
For posts where there is contact with, or access to personal records relating to children, young people and vulnerable adults, a CRB Disclosure will be required. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions) Order 1975 does not allow employees with access to children, young persons under the age of 18 and vulnerable adults the right to withhold information regarding previous criminal convictions, cautions and bindovers, including those regarded as 'spent' - all must be declared. A criminal record will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining a position.

If you are related to a Governor or an employee of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership we ask you to tell us so that we can make sure all applications are treated fairly.
As part of the Equal Opportunity in Employment Policy most of our vacancies are open to job sharing. This normally means that two people can voluntarily share one full time job.
They share the pay and other benefits in line with the hours worked; the split need not be 50/50. It is not necessary to apply with a partner. If you would like to job share the job you are applying for, please tick the relevant box.

Section 5: education/qualifications
We are interested in any form of education you have followed, including any courses which did not lead to an examination or qualification. We will take full note of any education or qualifications gained overseas or as part of an employment training scheme. Successful candidates will be required to provide proof of qualifications.
Section 12: other information in support of your application
When completing this section you can mention any experience gained through work, school, college, at home, in voluntary work, on work experience or through hobbies.
Think about how you can draw upon your skills and experience, and then match these against the criteria set out on the person specification. You should avoid bland statements such as “I have all the skills and abilities mentioned in the person specification” and fully explain how you meet the requirements e.g. if the person specification asks for “experience of working with elderly people”, you need to explain when, where and what was involved, e.g. “I helped to care for my grandmother for 3 years. She lived in the family home and I helped her to wash and dress each morning. I also helped with personal care including…”
For Section 12 You should ensure it contains sufficient information to assess whether you possess the essential requirements for the job when the selection panel is shortlisting.
Section 13: data protection act 1998
Please make sure that you have signed and dated the application form to confirm that your details are correct and complete. The falsification of information on the form will result in the application not being pursued or your contract being terminated if you have already been appointed.
What happens next?
After the closing date, shortlisting will be conducted by a Panel, who will match your skills/experience(s) against the criteria in the Person Specification.
If you meet all the essential criteria for the job and have a disability you will be guaranteed progression to the next stage of the selection process. The selection process may involve an interview(s), a short presentation or other work-based exercise.
The Person Specification indicates how the criteria will be assessed, e.g. ‘AF’ = application form, ‘I’ = interview, ‘T’ = test, ‘P’ = presentation and ‘E’ = exercise.
You will be selected for interview entirely on the contents of your application form, so please read the Job Description and Person Specification carefully before you complete your form.
Each application is given equal consideration. The selection panel treats all applicants fairly and makes no assumptions about you. We look at what you tell us about yourself on the application form.
We look forward to receiving your application.

References will be taken up before appointment. In any instance the references will only be considered once interviews have taken place to support the Selection Panel’s decision.

For jobs where you will be responsible for money or stock, you must ensure you provide details of former employers to cover the last twelve months. If you are unable to provide an employer reference for reason of unemployment or where your employer no longer exists, you are asked to name referees who are able to verify your good character.
