DBS GridThe PACT HR DBS Online service provides advice and support to schools and companies providing educational services regarding a range of employee vetting procedures; including DBS disclosures, ISA Barred List checks of the Children’s List and Vulnerable Adults List, and Teacher Status checks.

As part of the recruitment process, a DBS disclosure can help determine the suitability of an applicant to work in a post that involves working with children or vulnerable groups.

Our DBS process is a quick, easy and secure means of obtaining a DBS check.  It has been fully tested by National DBS.

We will work with you to support your safer recruitment processes, enabling you to obtain key background checks for the purposes of safeguarding children and as part of your legal responsibilities. Employers are responsible for ensuring that the school workforce, including relevant contractors and volunteers, are suitably vetted and that completed checks are logged on their Single Central Record.

PACT HR Advisory Service subscribers also have the added reassurance of professional advice available from their HR Business Partner, who can help to assess the applicant’s suitability if a certificate contains disclosures.
