What happens if one or more of my references is not submitted by the deadline?

Unfortunately it is not possible to submit references after the deadline has passed. What will happen is that applications of successful candidates will be passed to employing trusts. At this stage they will review the references received and make a decision whether any outstanding are required; as three references are requested, they will often be satisfied if they have two.

Our advice is that you do not need to take any action at this stage. If an employer needs an additional reference they will be in touch and there will be time to resolve this in advance of the post start date; any outstanding references at this stage will not prevent someone taking up their training programme.
