Recruitment, Selection and Vetting

To provide confidence4schools, our recruitment and selection policy ensures that we register and submit only the best candidates in terms of experience, skills and integrity. A copy of this policy is available upon request.




On first contact, each and every candidate is subject to standard vetting questions to determine their suitability for registration.


Every candidate who is deemed suitable for registration then has a face-to-face meeting with an experienced consultant.


During or after interview, we carry out the following checks:

  • Proof of Identity
  • Proof of address
  • Enhanced DBS Check and/or DBS Update check if applicable
  • Overseas police check (if appropriate)
  • Qualifications verification
  • Teacher status check with TRA
  • Right to work in the UK
  • Two professional references
  • Verification of every candidate’s mental and physical fitness to work
  • Gaps in CV history


Referral and the Single Central Record


Only when a candidate has met our strict vetting procedures will they be referred to you.


Upon referral, we email you a booking confirmation that details evidence of the checks we have undertaken, their assignment in your school and a photo of the staff member.


Our booking confirmation contains all the information you need for your SCR as recommended by the Department of Education.

Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique. Good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.
