    DBS Check

    Statutory guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education requires providers to ensure that entrants on all routes, including salaried schemes, have been subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) criminal records check including a check of the children’s barred list, and they should keep records showing that trainees have obtained these.

    All trainee teachers must be checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) through the ‘Disclosure’ process and will be assessed for suitability by the SCITT.

    All offers of a place at the Ashton on Mersey SCITT remain conditional upon the receipt of a satisfactory disclosure, prior to starting the programme. Trainee teachers will also have a prohibition of teaching check.
