Qualification Check

As part of the registration procedure it is required that the applicant’s original certificates are brought to the interview for a visual check, photocopied and verified against awarding bodies before filing in the individual teachers file. Where the applicant may have mislaid the originals Professional Supply Service will gain confirmation of their qualifications from the appropriate body.

Identity Checks

Professional Supply Service verify the identity of each and everyone one of their staff against two official documents one of which must include a photograph i.e. passport or photo card driving licence.

Reference Checks

We undertake at least two references for each applicant. These references are confidential and at least one is from an educational institution.

We carry out an extremely detailed interview before deciding whether or not the applicant would be suitable to join our team and enter schools, we realise that our reputation is in the hands of the teachers. Interviews are conducted at our offices on a face-to-face basis with a director/directors according to strict guidelines to ensure equal opportunities. It is at this interview where originals of qualifications are checked and that official documents are cross-checked to ensure applicant identity. Also at this time the final section of a criminal record check will be completed by a CRB authorised member of administrative staff.

We ensure that we comply with the rules and regulations as set down

by the Dfes Circular 7/96 Guidance on the use of supply teachers &  Safeguarding Children
