10. Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975
This post is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975 because it is a post which involves working directly with children or young people. You are therefore required to declare whether you have any criminal convictions (or cautions or bind-overs) including those which are “spent”.
Have you ever been convicted of any criminal offences warned or reprimanded in or been officially cautioned relation to any such offence?
Are you included in any list of people barred from working with children by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) or the General Teaching Council?
If Yes, please give details including dates, on a separate sheet, place the sheet in a sealed envelope marked for the attention of the Chair of the shortlisting panel and enclose it with this form.
If your application is successful, prior to taking up your post, you will be required to undergo a Formal Disclosure process through the Criminal Records Bureau. This will require you to complete a separate CRB application form and to provide a range of more than one piece of documentary evidence of your identity.
Although a criminal record involving offences against children is likely to debar you from appointment of this type of post, the existence of other criminal convictions will not necessarily be a bar to employment.
Any criminal record information arising out of the disclosure process will be discussed with you before any final decision is made about your employment.
It is a criminal offence to apply for or accept a position (paid or unpaid) working with children if you are excluded from such work by virtue of a court order or exclusion by the ISA.
Copies of the County Council‘s policy on the employment of ex-offenders and the CRB Code of Practice are available on request.
Copies of disclosure certificates are retained by the Local Authority until after the commencement of employment. The fact that a disclosure has been processed, with dates, is then recorded on our
