KeyDoc: template job offer letter DOC, 177.5 KB

Use the yellow highlighted text to help you adapt it to suit the role you're appointing someone to, and to meet your school's needs.

The letter includes information about checks that need to be done. You can find a downloadable checklist of checks for new school staff in our other article.

We worked with one of our associate education experts, Helen Cooper, to create this template letter. We also referred to guidance from Acas.

Written statement of terms and conditions of employment

You could incorporate the written statement of terms and conditions of employment in the job offer letter, according to the Acas guidance linked to above. However, Helen said that schools usually prefer to send this later and get acceptance of the job offer first.

Be clear on what this statement should include and when you need to send it by in our other article.
