Watching Soham Revisited made us think about all the safeguarding checks in place to keep children safe.
It is surprising on a daily basis the candidates we turn down to join our agency who are allowed to register elsewhere.
Only this week we were made aware of a candidate with no experience or relevant qualifications teaching as an Instructor through another agency.
We regularly have candidates checking why they need a new DBS or why we have queried a gap in their CV when their other agency hasn’t.
We take safeguarding extremely seriously, after all these checks are there for a reason.
Only trust an agency that holds the Gold Standard REC Accreditation as they have proven they have met standards of good practice in selection, vetting, development and general provision and management of education supply staff.
Make sure you are confident any supply staff you have in have been thoroughly vetted.
