Stage 1 - Online application form Expand The application form begins by asking for personal details, qualifications and experience. We look for specific competencies throughout our application process, which we ask you to demonstrate in the form. We also ask you to provide a short personal statement and 2 referees (1 academic and 1 personal). Double check your contact details and spelling throughout, and we’d always advise you to save your application regularly so you don’t lose your work. No previous tutoring/ teaching experience is required, but if you do have experience with children or young people please ensure you highlight this on your application form.
