In this time we’ve delivered high quality subsidised tutoring for over 70,000 disadvantaged pupils and employ over 2,000 qualified teachers as tutors. Our nationwide network means we can deliver tuition irrespective of a pupil’s postcode.

We will keep this information secure, only using it for the purposes outlined in our Terms and Conditions, and in full compliance with the prevailing data protection legislation. Where necessary, in order for us to complete our service to you - such as ensuring you’re paid for the work you do - we will securely pass your personal information to approved third-party service providers, such as payroll agencies.
We are regularly audited by third parties including the REC (Recruitment & Employment Confederation) as part of their Audited Education accreditation, NTP (National Tutoring Programme) CCS Framework (Crown Commercial Services) and other public sector bodies to ensure we are compliant with all relevant laws and obligations and therefore will be required to provide access to randomly selected candidate files.
We only work with other businesses that are GDPR compliant, so you can rest assured your personal information is safe and secure.
From time to time, we’d like to contact you to let you know more about the services we offer, share our latest career-related blog articles or news, or let you know about exclusive offers and promotions. We’d like to do this via email, post, SMS, phone and other electronic means. We’ll always treat your personal information with the utmost care and will never sell them to other companies for marketing purposes.

Connex Education is committed to paying to scale wherever possible and wherever school budgets allow. To help enable us to do so please confirm your current pay scale below, please be aware you may be required to provide evidence of your last pay to scale, in the form of a payslip, a letter from a previous employer or through confirmation from Teacher’s Pensions. If you are unable to provide evidence of your previous scale it may impact on Connex Education’s ability to pay you to scale.
The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
Please note that work in Education is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Ex-Offenders Act 1974 and all unfiltered convictions must be declared.
Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.
If you are currently subject to any kind of investigation or prosecution relating to a criminal act and/or which could lead to a conviction you must notify Connex Education Partnership (CEP) upon registration. If this were to occur whilst in employment with CEP you must declare this to us immediately. If you do not this could lead to termination of employment.
The Disqualification under the Childcare Act 2006 – statutory guidance for schools (July 2018) sets out the circumstance in which individuals are disqualified from undertaking certain childcare work (relevant childcare work) under the relevant statutory provisions. As part of our safeguarding checks we are required to check whether any candidates who are seeking work involving relevant childcare work are ‘disqualified’ from carrying out that type
of work. Individuals may be disqualified because they have either been convicted of a relevant offence or are subject to a relevant order.
You should read the following guidance notes carefully as they explain the vetting procedures Connex Education Partnership will carry out during your
Confidentiality Statement: I will keep secret and confidential all information made available to me about any educational establishment member of staff or pupil whilst on assignment.
I will keep any such information secure and will not disclose this nor allow it to be disclosed to any unauthorised person. I understand that the above
undertakings are terms of my assignment and should I break these, this may result in action, not excluding Civil or Criminal Prosecution being taken against me. This includes the Data Protection Act 1988 and any variations that may be made to this in the future. It is an offence for anyone who has been convicted of certain specified offences, or included on lists of people considered unsuitable by the Department for Education (DfE) & the Department
of Health (DoH) to apply for work with young people under the age of 18. I am therefore required to declare any details of any criminal record that I may have including pending prosecutions, convictions, cautions and bind overs. The information I give will be regarded as confidential and will only be disclosed in relation to appointment in schools.
The disclosure of a criminal record or other information will not debar you from appointment unless Connex Education Partnership considers, or is advised by the Department for Education or the TRA (Teaching Regulation Agency), that this renders you unsuitable for employment. In making the decision, Connex Education Partnership will consider the nature of the offence and how it occurred, what age you were when it was committed and any other factors which may be relevant. We are required by the Department for Education to share any Enhanced Disclosure information with Headteachers, Principles or designated persons prior to employment.
Failure to declare any pending/unspent prosecution, conviction, caution (excluding youth cautions, reprimands or warning) or bind over including those regarded as spent that are not protected as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2020 is an offence and may disqualify you from appointment, or result in your appointment being terminated when the discrepancy comes to light with possible referral to the police and Teaching Regulations Agency (TRA).
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS): Unless you hold an original Enhanced Disclosure that is registered on the update service, Connex Education Partnership will arrange for an Enhanced Disclosure check to be carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. A cost will apply for the Enhanced Disclosure but it will belong to you and can be used for assignments.
Any work or travel abroad within the last five years for a period of six months or more must be covered by copies of an appropriate police check or a letter of good conduct. Only original or properly certificated police checks/certificates of good conduct can be accepted. A UK Enhanced Disclosure is also required.
