Pre-employment screening for Education

Schools, colleges and universities have a significant duty of care when it comes to the safety and security of their students. (In England, this is laid out in the Department for Education’s Keeping children safe in education guidance).

Educational institutions have a statutory duty to perform pre-employment screening of staff, including verifying the identity and right to work of applicants, in conjunction with a criminal record check. 

Further checks such as verification of social media activity are recommended to provide further assurance of the integrity and character of teachers and other workers associated with the institution to avoid potential reputational harm.  

Security Watchdog offers:

  • Screening with a global reach to allow effective screening of international recruits
  • An easy-to-use platform which simplifies pre-employment background checks
  • Bespoke screening packages available for all levels of hires, including both teaching and non-teaching staff
