The Buckingham Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, and everyone involved in the SCITT share this commitment, and are therefore expected to behave in such a way that supports this commitment.

All trainees will be subject to the following pre-employment checks: health, identity, relevant work qualifications, right to work in the UK, professional registration (for qualified teaching staff), Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, references and a Childcare Disqualification and Disqualification by Association Declaration (where applicable). Please note that your place on the course will not be confirmed until clearance from all the above checks has been obtained.

The DBS check will reveal all convictions, reprimands and cautions even if considered spent within the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. Please see the DBS Code of Practice for more information
