If you are looking to work with young people or vulnerable adults then there are additional checks that TPP perform in order to meet REC Audited compliance and safeguarding criteria.
We have listed the main ones below, however on some occasions we may ask for additional information if requested by the client.
We can carry out an enhanced DBS check for you if you do not have a valid DBS currently. This is at a cost of £50.80 and once received you can register the certificate on the DBS update service for an annual cost of £13 which will ensure your certificate remains valid and can be transferred between organisations.
In order to carry out a DBS check we will need to see several documents at registration, as well as a 5 year address history plus proof of name changes and/or nationalities if applicable. For a full list of the documents required please ask your consultant when arranging a registration.
If you already have a DBS check which is registered on the DBS update service, please bring along a copy of your DBS as well as ensure that you have signed the declaration on our online registration forms.
If you have a DBS check which is not on the update service then please still bring along your DBS as some organisations may accept it if it is less than a year old, but please be aware you may be required to complete a new application. If this is the case please ensure that you register your new certificate on the DBS update service to prevent having to get repeated certificates.
For any questions relating to the update service please contact your consultant.
If you are registering with the Education and Training team working with young people or vulnerable adults then you will need at least 2 references to cover the last 3 years.
If you are registering with the Social Care Team then you will need at least 2 references to cover the last 3 years if working with vulnerable adults or 5 years if working with children.
For any other team you will need at least 2 references to cover the last 2 years.
Disqualification by Association
If you are working with an Ofsted registered organisation with children under the age of 8 years old, then you will need to complete a short form answering questions (to the best of your knowledge) around yourself and people that live in your household.
The answers to these questions will be confidential; however some answers may affect your ability to work with children under the age of 8 until Ofsted have vetted your circumstances.
For more information on this please speak to your consultant.
