Safeguarding children

Keeping children safe is our highest priority. As such, our approach is designed to exceed the DfE guidance as set out in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. You can rest assured that anyone who is sent to your school has been subjected to a rigorous vetting process.

We complete the following checks on every candidate as part of our on-boarding process:

  • An Enhanced DBS check with Child Barred List check from the last 12 months or registered to the Online Update Service
  • Photographic proof of identity
  • Right to work check
  • Address Verification
  • Proof of qualifications
  • NCTL teacher status check including checking for any sanctions
  • 2 references from previous work
  • Medical declaration certifying fitness to work in a school
  • Disqualification declaration certifying that neither they nor anyone in their household have ever been disqualified from working with children
  • An assessment of professional expertise by our experienced team
  • Sophisticated validation of identity documents including verifying ownership

Identity documents such as passports are run through Onfido, a high-tech identity tool that as is significantly more effective than the naked eye for verifying documents. Onfido uses machine-learning to validate the visual integrity of a document and searches police databases to ensure the document has never been compromised.

When you complete a booking with Zen Educate, relevant information such as DBS number will be emailed to the school immediately along with a photo of the teacher.
