What is a Teacher Status Check?

A Teacher Status Check looks at the record of a teacher you employ or are considering employing. These checks will search for prohibitions, restrictions and sanctions, including information on how it affects the type of work a teacher can be employed to do.

Appointing a teacher

You should process a Teacher Status Check before appointing a teacher to:

  • Check the award of qualified teacher status (QTS)
  • Check the completion of teacher induction
  • Identify prohibitions, sanctions and restrictions that might prevent the individual from taking part in certain activities or working in specific positions
  • View any additional qualifications, including relevant mandatory qualifications and national professional qualifications
  • Identify potential restrictions imposed by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

 

Eligibility for Teacher Status Checks

Schools, sixth-form colleges, local authorities and teacher supply agencies can all apply for Teacher Status Checks.
