The role of Education Checks

Background checks for teachers and other education staff who work in regulated activity are invaluable assets for preventing children from harm.

Learning environments should always maintain a culture of safeguarding in their recruitment processes and this includes following best practice. For example, Ofsted regulations require all new recruits to complete a new DBS Check.

In addition to statutory requirements, decision makers in education have ethical obligations to check their employees have the qualifications and right to work.

With our extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of education, we make every check count and enable you to make informed recruitment decisions. Our affordable and accessible expertise applies the highest professional standards to your background checks.
