Our Vetting Process

  • Qualification & GTC Check
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • Barred List
  • References
  • Previous employment history
  • Eligibility to work in the UK
  • Recent enhanced DBS Disclosure dated within the last 12 months or with portabiilty dated within the last 6 months
  • Medical Fitness

In the regrettable event of an incident occurring at your school involving a Teaching Talent teacher, you can also be assured that we will follow DfES Incident Report guidelines to the letter. We will also provide all relevant documentation within our powers and attend any subsequent meetings or hearings.

Safeguarding our children in schools is vitally important and at Teaching Talent we wholly support the Government initiatives to secure the welfare of our children. Anyone who comes into contact with vulnerable children or adults must have a DBS Enhanced Disclosure in place every 12 months. 

At Teaching Talent we will apply for a DBS on your behalf, and refund you the fee once you have worked for us for 20 days or more.
