DBS Check and Fitness to Teach
Currently, LoNoCo @ Middlesex University has to ensure that checks have been carried out, before a trainee can commence the GTP.
Under School Direct (Salaried), the school, as employer, is responsible for ensuring that an enhanced DBS check has been carried out. A DBS check carried out when the SDS candidate has worked in the school in another capacity remains valid – a new DBS check is not required. This applies to OTTP and AO candidates as well.
In all cases the school is also responsible for carrying out normal medical checks (Fitness to Teach) with due regard to the Equality Act 2010.
