The Enquire Learning Trust

Salary: n/a

Closing date for applications: 31 July 2024, 4.00pm


The Trust is legally obligated to process an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check before making appointments to relevant posts.

The DBS check will reveal both spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, and any other information held by local police that’s considered relevant to the role. Any information that is “protected” under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 will not appear on a DBS certificate.

For posts in regulated activity, the DBS check will include a barred list check.

It is an offence to seek employment in regulated activity if you are on a barred list.

We’ll use the DBS check to ensure we comply with the Childcare Disqualification Regulations. It is an offence to provide or manage childcare covered by these regulations if you are disqualified.

Any data processed as part of the DBS check will be processed in accordance with data protection regulations and the trusts information governance policy which can be found on the website.

Do you have a DBS certificate?

If you’ve lived or worked outside of the UK in the last 5 years the trust require additional information in order to comply with ‘safer recruitment’ requirements. If you answer ‘yes’ to the question below, we may contact you for additional information in due course.

Have you lived or worked outside of the UK in the last [5 years]?

Any job offer will be conditional on the satisfactory completion of the necessary pre-employment checks. Only applicants who have been shortlisted will be asked for a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable for the position. Any convictions that are self-disclosed or listed on a DBS check will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


If you’ve lived and/or worked outside of the UK, the trust must make any further checks it considers appropriate (in addition to the usual pre-employment checks).

We’ll base the decision on whether this is necessary on individual circumstances, and factors such as:

  • The amount of information you disclose in the DBS check
  • The length of time you’ve spent in or out of the UK


The trust will require you to provide evidence of your right to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.

By signing this application, you agree to provide such evidence when requested.
