As part of the registration process, you are required to undertake a criminal record check through the Disclosure & Barring Service. This is to ensure that you have not been barred from working with children and vulnerable adults and do not have criminal records that make you unsuitable for working with young people. This will be requested following a successful interview. Further information is available in the applicant guide.
All applicants will be required to attend a First Aid Training course during their induction week. The cost of this is estimated to be £85 but can be confirmed closer to the date.
