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.

  • 5 star review  I'm so impressed with Clarus Education and very glad to be represented by them - I recently found the agency through a job advert and decided to give them a call to see if it would be possible for me to work as a teaching assistant for them despite having limited experience in this area. From the very first phone call I found the team to be enthusiastic, kind, helpful and professional. When I met Ali, Shevonnae and Ryan I was really impressed with how they took their time to get to know me and my ambitions and expectations as well as having a relaxed and friendly approach. As soon as all necessary paperwork and checks were done I couldn't believe how quickly Ali arranged a trial at a school for me (within one day!) and at the end of the day I was offered the job. I'm really impressed with Ali's work and dedication in securing me this role and would definitely recommend Clarus to anyone seeking work in education because they have been fantastic to deal with and have turned what can be a stressful and anxious time into a really positive experience for me.

  • positive review  My partner recommended I contact George at Clarus Education - I'm so pleased that I did! Having graduated from University with a finance based degree - George was extremely confident I would find a role and would really suit working within education. His advice and guidance encouraged me to pursue a career in education and I've enjoyed every moment since beginning this journey. As soon as my DBS cleared I secured a role which further developed and allowed me to take on a full time role! The experience from start to now as been superb, professional and friendly. I've already recommended Clarus (and George) to two people - and will continue to do so with anyone looking for a job within the education sector. Big thanks to both Clarus Education and George!
