Peace of mind for
schools, staff
and parents

We take our responsibilities for vetting and safeguarding very seriously.

Pre-employment checks

Before we allow a candidate access to the Just Education platform, we will conduct all of the following checks:

A face-to-face interview, conducted by an experienced education professional with Safer Recruitment training

References from three previous employers, including at least one reference from an educational employer (although two educational references are supplied for the majority of candidates)

Enhanced DBS and children’s barred list check, plus an overseas criminal record check where the candidate has lived overseas

Identity and right to work in the UK

A check of the UK Prohibition from Teaching list and the EEA Teaching Restrictions and Sanctions list

A check of the candidate’s qualifications and teaching status, where appropriate

A mental and physical health check

Confirmation that the candidate is not disqualified from working with children under the Children Act, where appropriate

We comply fully with the requirements and recommendations set out by the Department for Education in Keeping Children Safe in Education and by the Welsh Government in Keeping Learners Safe.

Confidence for the long-term

We’re committed to ongoing quality assurance and rigorous safeguarding. We work with schools and academy trusts to gather regular feedback about every candidate we place so that our team can respond quickly and deal with issues promptly, including reporting information to the Disclosure and Barring Service or Teaching Regulation Agency where appropriate.
