CRB checks 'should be expected'
Jobseekers hoping to work with vulnerable sections of society should expect to be checked by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) to ensure they are suitable candidates for the position, the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) has explained.

According to the agency, prospective teachers who are applying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education will also be checked by the CRB before they are accepted onto the course.

A spokesperson for the TDA stated: "It's basically a painless process: you fill in a form and that's it. It's just a requirement that everyone has to go through, whether you're a caretaker or whatever."

It is 'par for the course' when applying these sorts of jobs, the spokesperson added.

Last year, 20,000 people were stopped from working with vulnerable people, Home Office figures revealed recently.

And in total, over the past four years 80,000 job candidates were found to be unsuitable through CRB checks.
