Safer Recruitment Policy

Language in Action is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students aged under 18 and expects all stakeholders and members of staff to share this commitment. 


Language in Action operates a strict safer recruitment according to our safer recruitment policy and all staff will have checks made on their suitability to work with children prior to confirmation of employment.


All applicants will be required to supply an up-to-date CV (all gaps will be investigated) and the contact details of 2 suitable references (including former employers) which will be followed up prior to employment. The referees will be asked specifically about applicant's suitability to work with children. 


All staff will be required to undergo an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check unless they provide details of their DBS Update Service subscription. Appropriate local police checks will be required from applicants living overseas. If applicants lived for more than 3 months in different countries within the previous 5 years, they will be required to provide a police check from each different Police country Department. 


All staff will be required to provide proof of identity and all relevant qualifications (originals only) – photocopies will be taken for our records. They will also be required to sign a 'Suitability to work with Children Declaration' to state that they are not barred from working with minors.


Offers of employment are subject to two satisfactory references and a satisfactory Enhanced DBS / police check.
