Do I have to pay a joining fee?
No there are no joining fees or placement fee for candidates.
I am moving to a new region, but I cannot get in to register and I need work immediately when I move, what do you suggest?
We can pre-register you via the internet, email, fax or post, then when you arrive in the area all you will need to do is call in to see us for a quick chat.
Can you send me the application forms?
Candidates are able to pre-register online, however it is not possible to complete the whole process online as part of the registration process includes undertaking a face-to-face interview with a consultant from your local branch.
How can I help speed up my registration?
You can e-mail, post or fax your referee details as part of your initial application process or before your face-to-face interview, as referencing can take quite a long time.
How long do CRB's usually take to process?
CRBs are normally processed in 4-6 weeks, although this can vary with the time of year. You must ensure that you follow all instructions accurately when completing a CRB as they can be sent back and you may incur a further, unnecessary delay.
Do you have access to resources?
We have an excellent range of teaching resources available which offer to all candidates. Every branch has a dedicated Resource Library and there is also an extensive range of materials available online.
Who will be my point of contact?
Each office has a specialist consultant who is dedicated to Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Special Needs. This individual will be introduced as your main point of contact.
Do you offer social gatherings?
Indeed we do, each office organises its own social events at different times of the year and holiday seasons.
