Learn by Design NCS Application Form


In order to complete this application, you will be asked to provide some information on this form and on this form hosted on the NCS Trust's website. Please ensure you complete both forms — we need both sets of information for your application to be considered complete.

This form will take you about 30 minutes to complete. You will need to have a copy of your CV to upload as well as an idea of when and where you are able to work.

Though it is possible to complete it on a mobile device, we think the best experience will be on a desktop or laptop computer because there are a number of free-text boxes that might be difficult to complete without a keyboard.

Learn by Design is committed to safeguarding and protecting the young people with whom we work. As such, all posts are subject to a safer recruitment process, including a criminal record check and a check against barred lists. We expect all staff members to share our commitment to safeguarding by ensuring compliance with our policies and practices.
