Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
This course will involve you working with vulnerable groups of individuals, including children. In order to ensure that the University Centre offers places on their programmes to suitable candidates, you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). We will be able to guide you through this process once you have been offered a conditional place of study at the Hugh Baird University Centre.
It is important to note that should your Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check proves to be unsatisfactory for the purpose of the course you have applied to, your offer of a place for that course may be withdrawn. If you have already enrolled on a course and your DBS check subsequently discloses a criminal conviction, you may be required to withdraw from the course even if you have already started. If you are aware that your DBS check will disclose a previous conviction, please contact the course leader for advice as not all convictions may preclude you from continuing with the course.
