Valence School

Staff Vacancies

Please see our current vacancies below and click on 'Read More' for further details.  During the current coronavirus pandemic and following current government guidelines we are holding online interviews.

Due to continued growth and development of the school we are looking to recruit new staff to join us!  For many of these new posts we are recruiting on a rolling basis, which means that when our roles open, they will be recruited for on a first come first served basis so we encourage you to submit an application as soon as possible.  If the vacancy you have applied for fills up before you've completed the application process, we will offer you the opportunity to consider another vacancy with us.

As we are unable to arrange tours of the school at present, please see our website videos to see our school in action in our Formal, Semi-Formal and Pre-Formal curriculum pathways and in our residential provision.

Information for applicants:

Applications must be made on the school's application form.  C.V.'s alone will not be considered.  Please note 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, medical clearance and evidence of eligibility to work in the UK and evidence of qualifications must be provided.

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.

If you have any recruitment questions or require the application form in an alternative format  please contact our HR team vacancies@valence.kent.sch.uk or call 01959 567841.
