    Hi I was offered a contract for a teaching post 2 weeks ago after working on supply at a school for 8 months. However the new head of 1 month has now took the contract away and took the supply post off me as there is a section 39 caution on my CRB from July 2013- is this legal or ethical ?
    A quick Google suggests Section 39 covers assault, so yes, it was both legal and 'ethical' assuming by that you mean what educators do these checks for. You are likely to struggle to get any job in education with a report of assault in a DBS return unless it is very, very old.

    Hi there I received a simple caution my girlfriend works as a foster carer and now with this simple caution hanging over me would I be able to live with her if she worked with adults . Would be most grateful for any advise because this is affecting us both. I don't live with my girlfriend but we would like to one day sooner rather than later thou. Any advise would be great thank you .
    You need to check what the rules are about the household of employees. Some jobs - and from memory I think it is working with children under the age of 8, not sure any adults, even if vulnerable, are included - require all householders to be checked as well. There is a lot of debate if this is a law that is going to survive, it does seem to take things beyond the realm of the reasonable.

    However, the fostering is likely to be much more of an issue. It will depend what the caution was for, but it might well be an issue.

    Hi David, do you know where I might be able to access this list of cautions that can be removed? I have a caution for 'battery'. It sounds horrible and is a result of a stupid drunkern evening. This happened in 2009. I work in a nursery at the moment, I have applied for a couple of jobs in schools and haven't heard back. I would like to eventually train as a teacher but I'm wondering if i'll be rejected as there'll be lots of other applicants without a criminal record?

    Kind regards

    Dear all,

    Further to my reply, it may well be that a caution is now filtered off if more than 6 years old and not on the list of serious offences which will not be filtered off.
    The law was changed on 29 May last. When they published a list of 700+ offences which would not be filtered off. However, without publicity, the list was reduced to about 250 offences seemingly increasing the number of people who would not be affected but, there is a further list not yet published which could mean that the caution would still be mentioned – it is vital, therefore to make specific enquiries with an experts or the DBS specifically asking if a specific offence to which you were cautions is or is not filtered off.
    if it is not filtered off. However, it is possible – but not certain – that some cautions cannot be removed on individual application

    Anyone with specific enquiries, please let me know and I will see if I can clarify this for you.

    Regards

    David Wacks



    Hello.3 years ago i was caught shoplifting in marsh&spencer in ealing broadway,london uk,on 10th,may . On that day i had a quarrel with my parents over money and in a state of unclear mind i wanted to disgrace them, so i convicted this first offence. I took socks and underwear and children sticker from other store but wasn't caught and then i went to M&S, i took food, which cost 15pounds and left the store without paying for it. the store manager stopped me and called the police who then noted down my identity information & fingerprint. They didn't take me to the police station but gave me a police caution and locked my information on the CRB or DBS check. I paid a penalty of 80 pounds(PND) for the convicted offence . I told them i was an international student from southeast asia, so they didn't inform the incident to my university as it was a minor offence. After that incident, I could still continue my study in the uk and when my exam was over i went back to my country and returned back to london after 1 months to attend my friend's wedding,and after that returned back to my country untill now. I have stay clean ever since. I didnt get arrested or put on jail. Does it classify as a crime conviction? Does that mean i already hold a criminal record in uk ?Can i still go back to uk after 3 years?Does this affect me when applying for visa to enter Canada or other nation for studying abroad as well as working abroad? Does it still show up on my CRB/ DBS check? how can i ask for the removal if it still show up?or should i declare about it at the canada embassy when applying for study permit ?I have reached 24 years old now, I know what i have done is very silly, stupid,n immature at the age of 21, i didnt count the consequences that i could face. im very worry if this will affect my further future education in canada. Please give me an advice. Thank you so much!

    Hi everyone, was Just wondering I am going to hopefully be studying Primary Education at university to become a teacher and just wanted to know whether my DBS Check has to cover both the adult barred list and child barred list? I have an enhanced DBS that covers the child barred list, would this be ok? Thank you
