If you already have a DBS certificate which is dated within one years of your registration date with Affinity Education and you have registered with the DBS Update Service, Affinity Education will be able to also check your certificate on-line at the point of registeration and annually.
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) introduced the Update Service for applicants keep their DBS certificates up to date online and to allow employers to check a certificate online.
You can register on line when you apply for a DBS certificate, or within 19 days of getting one (you’ll need the certificate reference number).
Registration lasts for 1 year and costs £13 per year. When you join, you’ll get an online account that lets you: take your certificate from one job to the next, give employers permission to check your certificate online, and see who has checked it.
