Childcare Placement Assessor

  • Welcome

    The College combines great facilities with quality teaching and high standards, including a multi-million pound building, providing state of the art technology enabled learning resource centre, drama studio and café.

    We will offer you a warm welcome to NewVIc - a place where all ambitions are celebrated. As one of the largest sixth form colleges in London, we are a non-selective, diverse and secular college, proud to have launched over 50,000 young people onto university, training and employment since we were founded in 1992.

    The College is currently graded as 'Good' by Ofsted, and 'Outstanding' for our provision of personal development, behaviour and welfare. We are very proud to be a three-time silver award winner at the Pearson National Teaching Awards, where in 2020, we made history by becoming the first ever provider to win two awards in a single year.

    We believe that everybody has the power to make a positive impact on society - small changes that add up to make the world a better place.

    Our motto is: Diverse in Ambition, United in Success

    Due to the nature of our business and environment, the post for which you are applying is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, which means that candidates must disclose 'spent convictions, cautions and reprimands'.

  • Complete the application form

    Please read the job description and the person specification carefully. Consider the extent to which you meet the person specification, and illustrate this in your application's personal statement. You can include all relevant experience, including voluntary work.

    We appreciate that if you are applying for a first post, you may have limited direct experience of some aspects of the work. This should not stop you from applying as long as you feel that overall you can show that you meet the criteria for the post.

    When we draw up a longlist of candidates, we select those who most closely match the person specification. Unfortunately, we often receive applications where the candidate has not taken this into account. It is rare for these candidates to be longlisted.

    You should give evidence of how you meet the criteria - please don't just quote them. You can write a paragraph on each requirement in turn, showing how you meet it. However, this might restrict your ability to present yourself as you wish. You may, therefore, organise your supporting statement more freely, while still considering the criteria.

    Your application may be word-processed or handwritten. Good presentation and accurate expression are expected.

    Your supporting statement should strictly be no more than 1,200 words.
We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date of the adverts should we receive a sufficient level of interest!
