Changes to safer recruitment checks

Tuesday, April 6, 2021
Stafflex Education are aware of the Department for Education’s (DfE) updated guidance in relation to recruitment of teachers from overseas which has been in effect from 1st  January 2021. For further guidance please read the Home Office guidance on criminal records checks for overseas applicants.
We would like to reassure all of our partners we work with that we have maintained stringent enhanced checks on all applicants throughout the Brexit transition period and will continue to do so in line with the latest guidance from DfE.
Our comprehensive safeguarding and compliance process includes a thorough face-to-face interview (currently taking place under COVID guidelines), TRA checks, professional references checks, eligibility to work checks and qualification checks as well as confirmation of medical declaration and all relevant DBS and overseas police checks.
