DBS Check Service

If you want to work in a childcare position in England or Wales you will be required to have a DBS check (formerly CRB). This is a check of your criminal record by the Disclosure and Barring Service. After the check, you will be provided with a certificate that you can be shown to prospective employers/parents to show you are a suitable person to work with children, giving them peace of mind.

For more information about the Disclosure & Barring Service please visit the government website.

You are also required to have these checks if you wish to apply for the voluntary register with Ofsted as a childminder, which can further increase your employability. We have many years’ experience completing these checks and offer a guidance service to help people with their application. Upon purchasing our DBS check you will be asked to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly team who will go through the next steps.
