Do I need a Reference?
When completing your online application form, if a reference is required you will be asked to provide
the name of your referee along with their current email address. The reference template will be
automatically emailed to your referee.
Who should I ask to be my Referee?
A referee is someone who can comment on the character, work ethic or qualifications of another
person. Applicants currently attending, or who have recently left school are required to have this
reference completed by their Pupil Care & Support Teacher or Head Teacher. Other applicants should
ask a person who knows them well, but is not a family member/friend.
I submitted the application without giving my Referee’s email address
If you did not give us your Referee’s email address then you should contact your referee to get their
email address, once you have this please email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org a
we will contact the referee directly. Please remember to include your name and title of your course(s)
you have applied for.
I’ve given you the wrong email address for my Referee
You can send your referee’s email address to email@example.com ,
to include your name and title of your course(s) you have applied for.
