Capita Education Resourcing is committed to keeping children and young people safe. Preventing those who might wish to harm or abuse them from entering the workforce is a top priority. In line with revised guidance published by the DfE on Safeguarding Children in Education, Capita has an email vetting confirmation and ID card system.
The guidance places a responsibility on schools and FE colleges to keep a single, central record collating when checks on staff were made and by whom, including identity, qualification requirements and criminal records checks.
All of Capita's staff are rigorously vetted before they register with us, and before any staff are deployed to your school you will be provided with an email confirmation which clearly states that each check required by the DfE has been carried out. These checks include:
- Face to face interview
- References, I.D check
- Previous employment history
- Disclosure & Barring Service checks (criminal record and barred list checks)
- Qualifications & QTS, GTC status, completion of induction
- Right to work
- Overseas Police check
The email vetting confirmations provided by Capita satisfy all aspects of the DfE/OFSTED guidelines and can be used as the single, central record.
In addition to the email vetting confirmation system all Capita staff are provided with a photo ID Card which features the name, address and date of birth of the candidate. The information on the ID Card will match that on the confirmation email, therefore offering you further peace of mind when booking through Capita.
If you are employing new members of staff who are not from Capita or you would like to renew checks on existing members of staff, Capita Education Resourcing's sister company Capita Recruitment Vetting Service is an Umbrella Body registered with the DBS (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) to administer vetting/reference checks on your behalf. They will provide you with detailed evidence of all the checks conducted that will satisfy the DfE/OFSTED guidelines and can be used as a single, central record.
