To ensure the trust adheres to Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022, all those aged 16 and above volunteering in regulated activity will be subject to an enhanced (with barring) DBS check. No volunteering will be available for those under 16 years old, unless at one of the co-linked schools.

We will be offering two types of placements this academic year, either a weekly placement or a block work placement. The weekly placement will be a minimum commitment of 1 hour per week. This will be tailored to your availability and ideal for a college/ 6th form/ university student. The other placement will be a block of either one or two weeks - this is best suited for work experience. All will be offered on a first come, first served basis.  In certain circumstances, we may offer an extension for a volunteer to stay longer with us. This will only be offered once discussed and confirmed by senior leaders and HR.

Students requiring work placements as part of their degree or placement will be offered them by the heads of school if there is suitable availability and their university has completed the necessary safeguarding checks.

Weekly placement: Application window opens on: 1st November 2023 and will close on 7th May 2024.

Work experience placement – 1/2 weeks available to those wishing to undertake a work placement.  Please apply at least three weeks prior to the intended placement to allow plenty of time. 

Applications will be paused during the very busy recruitment times in the window period.
