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).

  • 5 star review  Clarus education were outstanding throughout the whole recruitment process and found me a role within 2 days. It was my passion to go into teaching and I am incredibly happy with my placement. George from Clarus was incredibly helpful and remained in constant contact (he also agreed to buy snacks which is never a bad thing). I have been thoroughly impressed with Clarus and reccomend them to anyone who wishes to pursue a career within education.

  • 5 star review  Clarus Education were excellent in helping me find and secure a placement. I had been with a few other agencies before, but Clarus were by far the best! My recruiter was Nikki and she was amazing and was always available for advice and help. She took time to find specifically what I was looking for in terms of a school and ensured that I found a school which met my needs, but also ensured, that I matched the needs of the school as well. Brilliant recruiter and would recommend!

  • positive review  After starting my collaboration with the agency, Ryan was deeply involved in matching me with the right school and only suggested positions he knew would meet my personal needs and preferences. He offered great support throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to ensure I was confident and well-prepared for the interviews. Thanks to Ryan's help, I am now excited to start my first job in an amazing school, and I doubt such an opportunity would arise without his help; I cannot recommend him enough.
