WORK WITH US
At Newman, we call ourselves a family because every member of staff, from Reception to IT technicians and those in the classroom all contribute to making sure our students take their next steps in the world with no door closed to them.
No fancy video, Ofsted grade or carefully thought-out blurb can give you an idea of who we are and what we stand for – so if you are interested in any of the roles we have available please use the ‘Contact’ button at the top to get in touch. We invite you to come and see us!
In the meantime, we asked some of our staff the question ‘why do you work at Newman’ and this is what they came up with...
Please note there are a number of statutory requirements for applications: please refer to the individual advert and application form for further details.
We regularly take trainees from Teach First, Manchester Nexus SCITT, Star Institute and St Patrick’s Schools Direct. Our ITE Lead acts as the professional mentor/ tutor and facilitates bespoke opportunities for your development throughout your training period.
Teachers in early Career Induction
In the first two years of their career, ECTs follow a carefully balanced package of study, practice and coaching to support their transition into the profession. We follow Ambition Institute’s curriculum, delivered by local partner Forward as One. ECTs at Newman benefit from having two designated members of staff with specific responsibility for ECT and mentor development, which provides an extra opportunity for colleagues at the start of their careers to get highly targeted advice.
Newman College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every student and we expect all staff and volunteers to share our commitment.
Applications must be made on the school's application form. C.V.'s alone will not be considered.
We can only consider applicants who have the right to work in the U.K.
For safeguarding, two employment references are taken up before interview and successful applicants will require an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. All posts are subject to pre-employment checks including medical clearance, evidence of eligibility to work in the UK and evidence of qualifications must be provided along with a full employment history from leaving full-time education.
The enhanced DBS check is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013 and 2020) therefore any spent convictions or cautions will need to be disclosed (unless protected) and a local police check is undertaken. Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website or the NACRO or UNLOCK charity websites.
Please be aware that schools are also required to undertake online recruitment checks on shortlisted candidates under changes to Keeping Children Safe in Education.
