Safeguarding & Standards

At Clarus Education, we completely appreciate and understand that vetting safeguarding and security is paramount throughout education, which is why we ensure that all of our candidates are 100% compliant; and that we continually raise the bar, going above and beyond DfE guidelines.

Our candidates and clients can always be assured that all vetting procedures have been carried out using all requirements and more within the industry, allowing clients to comply with their legal obligations for safer recruitment in education.

To ensure that our vetting procedures are always adhered to, we will only place candidates that have been able to demonstrate they hold:

  • Proof of right to work in the UK (UK/EU Passport or valid Visa document)
  • Valid photographic ID
  • Teaching Qualification – if applicable (verified by DfE/QTLS check or UK NARIC if awarded overseas)
  • Current DBS Certificate (including a valid Online Status Check)
  • Barred List Clearance (formerly List 99)
  • Overseas police checks – if applicable (for time spent living or working overseas)
  • Medical declaration
  • Structured & in depth competency based interview
  • Professional References (covering 2 years including most recent employer)
    Current CV (covering up to 10 year work history)

Prior to attending a trial day, interview or observation, Clarus Education will ensure all client schools have a complete list of the safeguarding checks for each and every candidate which the school will keep within their Single Central Record (SCR).

For additional information, please feel free to visit our ‘Candidates Policies & Procedures’ or ‘Safer Recruitment Policy’. Any additional questions, please feel free to contact us and speak to one of the team.

  • positive review  Clarus Education are an excellent agency that helped me find a teaching position that I am quickly falling in love with. Kelvin was particularly key to this. In spite of my somewhat odd circumstances, worked tirelessly to find me a position regardless of it being in his area or not. Kelvin was also incredibly encouraging and positive and took the time to understand who I was and where I could be best positioned to not just be effective as I could be in my role, but also where my needs were on a personal level. Honestly, all thanks must go to him and his outstanding work for helping me realise my dream and getting me onto the ladder so to speak. Onwards and Upwards from here!

  • 5 star review  Clarus Education is an excellent employment consultancy that really works with their clients in understanding and helping them achieve their goals. My main contact is Nikki Webber, who has been a dream. She has helped me tremendously every step of the way and still checks up on me one year down the line. She not only placed me a role for my own suitability but also made sure my personal goals were achieved through my placement. I've got nothing but praise for Nikki and have only great things to say about her. I'm very happy with the professional and efficient service provided. I will definitely be recommending.
