General Advice

The Principal Reference should be completed by the applicant’s school principal, or if they are unavailable, another senior member of staff from the applicant’s school.

The applicant is responsible for their Principal Reference being submitted by the deadline.

We recommend applicants conduct the video interview in a quiet, private, well-lit place, free from possible interruptions and with a stable internet connection.

All Stage 2 candidates will be notified of the outcome of their application by email.

Short-listed candidates will advance to Stage 3.
