Hi, can I please ask those in the School community how they deal with those people who are unable to supply 2 references. We have a number of applicants who have been out of the work place for a number of years bringing up their children.
I have a case currently where an individual is able to provide me with one referee where she worked until 2016 (for about 3 years) but nothing prior to that as she has been out of the workplace for 15 years.
I need to confirm a start date as we are so short-staffed and have everything else in place but our SR policy dictates that we must have 2 references from previous employers. Can you please let me know what you do in your own Schools.
