As a potential co-worker you would usually apply by email and are asked to send a filled in application form (see below) together with your photograph, you can include a C.V. or any additional information too. Later, you will be asked to have a medical and criminal record check, and send us the relevant documents for these. Once we have assessed your application, and we wish to progress this with you, we will arrange an online interview to find out more about you, and to give you an opportunity to find out more about us. After being fully informed about our life and work here, or if possible after an initial visit, you are asked to commit yourself for a full year, occasionally it may be possible to come for a shorter period.

All co-workers new to Camphill life are expected to attend the Foundation Course. This course is comprised of one-hour weekly sessions, visits to other centres, and occasional specific training sessions and lectures. A full year's attendance entitles participants to a certificate. First Aid, epilepsy, manual handling, food hygiene, health and safety and adult protection courses are also provided to all co-workers. All co-workers receive regular supervision from their House Coordinator.
