Safeguarding

As industry specialists, we understand the stringent requirements placed on organisations operating within the Education sector. For that reason, we have developed a robust and transparent process that ensures our clients are confident in the status of all vetting checks completed prior to any individual providing services on site.

We make it our business to monitor and adapt to any industry or legislative changes and have a team dedicated to ensuring our own thorough processes are fully completed and communicated to our clients. Separating our compliance function from the sales division ensures total transparency and that a specialist team is on hand when our clients need them.

As standard we guarantee to check a worker’s status against Right to Work, Children’s Barred List and perform a NCTL Prohibition check. We will also obtain a reference from their last education placement including, if different, their most recent employer.

We will also complete a number of additional checks including, but not limited to: ID; DBS and where applicable, Overseas Police Checks; Qualifications, including any from overseas; Full Employment History; and Address and Medical Fitness.

Whilst our comprehensive checks will ensure our clients are able to satisfy their obligations and requirements we pride ourselves on our service provisions and will gladly work with our clients where possible to incorporate any specific requirements into our own systems.

"May I congratulate you on the efficient and thorough way the required paperwork is completed and forwarded prior to the start of an assignment. I am very impressed with the thoroughness of approach and the professionalism demonstrated by Edgware Associates during the recruitment of each candidate, and as such have no hesitation recommending you."

"Edgware Associates are responsive to our needs, not only in finding good quality staff but also adapting to our particular procedures for completing the ever increasing vetting checks. Their efforts to learn and understand our specific needs shows the care they take over finding the right 'fit' for both teacher and school."
