Recruitment into the education sector is quite rightly well regulated. We have always ensured that we remain aware of and adaptable to any regulatory changes and developments within education and the associated safeguarding requirements.
We have a dedicated in-house Vetting Team who operate independently of our recruitment consultants. As such, our candidates are subject to the following checks:
Our clients are provided with status updates for all candidates throughout the recruitment process, ensuring full, clear information is available to them to fulfil their own compliance obligations.
Although we have developed a structured approach to compliance, the listed checks are by no means exhaustive and we are happy to work with our clients where possible to include any additional checks that they may require.
Education StaffBank always conduct comprehensive checks that are completed before an employee commences employment with us. We receive regular updates from the consultant or back office team which assists us greatly with our planning and recruitment processes.
From my experience, I am impressed with the vetting and screening carried out by Education StaffBank. I always receive a prompt response from both the back office team and the consultants, even if I am requesting extra information. Safeguarding and vetting information is crucial when taking on temporary staff and I feel that Education StaffBank has this in mind when sending over documents and information.
It is vital that as a supplier to Nottingham College, Education StaffBank take the vetting and screening of candidates as seriously as we do. We are confident that they provide the highest level of checks, and effectively communicate with us throughout the process, taking into account any special requirements as needed. It is essential that we can be assured of the level of care and attention Education StaffBank pays to the stringent safeguarding procedures for employees.
As an FE College we take vetting and screening very seriously for the protection of our students and our reputation. We are confident Education StaffBank conduct vigorous checks and that they are completed before employees commence employment with us, whether this is in a temporary or permanent basis. We receive regular updates on progress so we can plan accordingly.
