This online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks training course for teachers and school staff teaches learners what the disclosure and barring service is, how to request a basic check and dispute or appeal a decision, how to identify the difference between prohibition and interim prohibition orders, other ways to apply for a DBS check, and how to find further information and advice.
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is a statutory requirement of the recruitment process of staff in an education setting. Schools are more than simply a place for students to learn science or acquire a new language; they are also a place where children should be safeguarded from harm.
A major and important part of ensuring a school is a safe place is making sure DBS vetted teachers and volunteers are hired. Schools may even need to provide evidence of a DBS check when inspections occur.
