We continue to promote our view that all tutors tutoring children should have passed a DBS check and we are happy to assist our members to get and maintain their DBS clearance. Our recommendation is that members would apply / have an Enhanced certificate if they work with children and / or vulnerable adults.
We provide access to the DBS Check Service through Capita, who work with some of the country's leading employers and governing bodies for the provision of pre-employment and criminal records checks.
We offer unlimited DBS processing for tutors working with our corporate members; we only ask that the applicant provides the Corporate Member’s membership number.
Identity checks will need to be carried out through the service provided by the Post Office. Copies of your certified documentation has to be sent to TTA, preferably via email as this will speed up the process.
Please note the fee for this service is NOT included in the membership fee.
Costs are as follow:
The Update Service
Registration to the Update service must be done in the first year (within that first year) of your DBS. If your DBS check is older than a year, then you will need to reapply for a DBS in order to get onto the Update Service.
A subscription to the Update Service lasts for one year.
You can renew your subscription through the Update Service, either:
If you do not renew your subscription before it ends, you’ll need to apply for a new DBS check and register for the Update Service again
An additional fee of £13 is payable to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
