All of our tutors on the School Programme will need a valid DBS check. A DBS check is a criminal background check which confirms your identity and checks if you have any criminal convictions. It's legally required when working with children under 18 in schools.
If you don’t have a valid DBS check, then it's not an issue. We can register an application for you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and to attain a DBS check. Please note that all our DBS checks are carried out by Onfido, and all charges will be handled by them directly.
*For a limited time only, we're offering a 'help to buy' loan to tutors who teach core subjects (Maths and Sciences) to help cover the cost of a DBS check. We'll pay for half of the upfront cost (£30), and once you’re earning, we’ll deduct £5 from each lesson payment until the loan has been repaid. If you'd like to find out more about the loan, please email email@example.com*
If you already have a valid DBS check, please check that it meets our criteria and then upload a clear image of your certificate to your profile - instructions are detailed below.
