Applying for the job

We can only accept completed application forms, rather than CVs. This is because the regulatory guidelines of Keeping Children Safe in Education, require us to check various details of job applicants and an identical application format for each candidate enables us to do this.

Our website www.aggs.trafford.sch.uk contains our application form and disclosure of criminal background form. Both completed forms should be emailed to vacancies@aggs.bfet.uk by 12 midday on Monday 26 April 2021. Applicants who are not contacted during this period may assume that they have not been successful but are thanked for their interest. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants who are not called for interview.
