Why do I need background checks in the education sector?
Asking an employee who works in regulated activity with children to undertake a criminal record check may not be a legal requirement. However, it’s a criminal offence to knowingly recruit, or continue to employ, someone in regulated activity who is listed on the Disclosure and Barring Service’s (DBS) barred lists.
To wait for a person to harm someone is an unnecessary lapse in our duty of care. We all have a part to play in helping safeguard vulnerable people. First Advantage’s background checks in the education sector give you peace of mind that your school or campus is a safe place for both students and staff.
By performing background screening checks on new applicants, not only can you be sure the individual is exactly who they say they are and they’re suitable to work in education, but you’ll also deter unsuitable individuals from applying to begin with.
