Safeguarding & Standards

At Clarus Education, we completely appreciate and understand that vetting safeguarding and security is paramount throughout education, which is why we ensure that all of our candidates are 100% compliant; and that we continually raise the bar, going above and beyond DfE guidelines.

Our candidates and clients can always be assured that all vetting procedures have been carried out using all requirements and more within the industry, allowing clients to comply with their legal obligations for safer recruitment in education.

To ensure that our vetting procedures are always adhered to, we will only place candidates that have been able to demonstrate they hold:

  • Proof of right to work in the UK (UK/EU Passport or valid Visa document)
  • Valid photographic ID
  • Teaching Qualification – if applicable (verified by DfE/QTLS check or UK NARIC if awarded overseas)
  • Current DBS Certificate (including a valid Online Status Check)
  • Barred List Clearance (formerly List 99)
  • Overseas police checks – if applicable (for time spent living or working overseas)
  • Medical declaration
  • Structured & in depth competency based interview
  • Professional References (covering 2 years including most recent employer)
    Current CV (covering up to 10 year work history)

Prior to attending a trial day, interview or observation, Clarus Education will ensure all client schools have a complete list of the safeguarding checks for each and every candidate which the school will keep within their Single Central Record (SCR).

For additional information, please feel free to visit our ‘Candidates Policies & Procedures’ or ‘Safer Recruitment Policy’. Any additional questions, please feel free to contact us and speak to one of the team.

  • positive review  Kelvin Fortune found me my perfect job. Helped me from his first phone call, through the registration process and gave me fantastic interview tips. Always at the end of the phone if needed. I can recommend them highly.

  • 5 star review  Only good things to say about this company. My main contact is Nikki Webber who has been fantastic and genuine in every step of the process from registration to Clarus Education through to being offered a job in a Primary School that is supportive and of a high standard which is also close to my house. Nikki will always take my calls or if already in a meeting she will call back shortly - she made me feel confident in my own abilities and most importantly she was enthusiastic in every thing she did. I have had bad experiences with other education agencies but the high level of professionalism, attention to detail and support provided by Clarus Education made me want to write this positive review.

  • positive review  I've been working mostly with Ryan French at Clarus Education and he has been absolutely amazing! From helping me find exactly the job I was looking for (and now totally love) to helping me sort out the finer details such as issues with pay, he has always been available when I have needed support and has made the whole process of finding a job that suits me, really easy.

  • 5 star review  I have only marvelous things to say about this agency. When I first had my interview with them I was desperate because I wanted to gain experience in a secondary school and I couldn't get any place to start with. Then, I was so lucky to have met such a great team of professional workers who helped me throughout all the things I had to do step by step and always comforting me that I would find a place to start my career. My main guidance was Alison Watkis who explained me in details everything I needed to do and never doubt for a moment that I could not find a place. Thanks to Alison, I had one of the best experiences of my life in such an amazing school. I can't thank them enough for this awesome opportunity. I highly recommend this agency for any teaching role one might look for from TA, NQT's to professional teachers. A great team of professionals who are always there for you, ready to help you with everything you need. A huge THANKS guys, you rock ��
