ARE YOU UP TO DATE WITH YOUR DBS CHECKS?
DO YOU KNOW WHO IN YOUR ORGANISATION REQUIRES A DBS AND AT WHAT LEVEL?
‘DBS – Everything You Need to Know’ is a 3 hour interactive workshop led by Denise Timmins, Spark Somerset’s DBS Officer. The workshop is designed to provide an opportunity for organisations to gain a better understanding of who is and who is not eligible for a DBS check and to ensure that the correct level of check is being applied for.
It is important to be aware of the regulations surrounding DBS checking eligibility. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone is actually entitled to a DBS check.
Who is the workshop aimed at?
Any organisation who believe their employees/volunteers require DBS checks and want to ensure they are asking for the correct level of check.
What will attendees achieve?
A greater knowledge of whether an applicant is eligible for a DBS check and the level of check that you can request.
What will the workshop cover?
Learn the roles eligible for a DBS check and the level that it can be requested
