Cantium has extensive experience in providing bespoke human resources solutions to clients in the UK. Our services include standard, enhanced and enhanced DBS with list checks for schools, universities, colleges, multi-academy trusts and other organisations in the education sector. We can help you make sure that you hire the right employees to preserve your workplace risk-free by running online disclosure and barring checks on your staff or on applicants. Ensuring the safety of students, teachers and administrators starts with screening everyone before welcoming them on your team. Cantium is here to support you in this process and offer bespoke solutions for your organisation.

DBS and Basic Disclosure Checks for Schools

There are certain practices related to the recruitment process in education that you need to observe. Having a reliable partner to support with that is vital for identifying unsuitable applicants and appointing successful candidates.. Regardless of the position the person is applying for, whether it is paid or unpaid and whether it involves direct activities with children, we will run screenings to verify that the person is suitable for your organisation and is not prohibited from joining it.

DBS checks for new starters, contractors and volunteers

Onboarding new employees is an exciting but also extremely challenging process. Apart from making sure that the applicant has the correct qualifications for the position, as an employer, it’s your responsibility to verify if the person is legally able to work with you. Cantium’s experts can help you with this task by running thorough and efficient DBS checks for all of the new recruits, contractors and volunteers at your school. Our solutions are fully hosted and maintained to make it as easy as possible for our clients and they are fully compliant with national legislation and all of the relevant regulations in the education sector.

We provide unlimited services where the results are available 24/7 and we can partner with you regardless of the size of your organisation. If you need fewer than 1500 checks per year, you can run the checks through our Employmentcheck website and we will countersign them on your behalf. If your needs exceed 1500 checks per annum, we will provide you with your own branded website to direct people to for a fully independent process.

DBS Guidance for Schools

DBS guidance for schools

Cantium’s experts are familiar with the Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges that aims to keep young people safe in education. The guidance sets out specific mandatory practices that educators are required to follow and provides additional recommendations that should be observed generally. We can help you make sure that your school has specific internal mechanisms in place that aim to safeguard young people and promote their welfare. Our experts are highly experienced in running screenings to vet potential applicants and we can partner with your organisation to share our expertise for the benefit of your students and organisation.
