Appointment Documentation

The Bishops' Conference has stated that all Catholic school should use the CES Contracts, policies and procedures for all appointments (teaching and associate staff) as there are elements that are pertinent only to those working in a Catholic school that will not be covered by LA versions.

The attachments below cover all aspects of the appointment process but some aspects (indicated) need to be personalised  by each individual school.
