    Thanks popcorns. Because of my criminal record, it is going to be unlikely that i can teach any one at all, at least not in the near future. After the masters it is my aim to get a doctoral degree, and from there possibly some research post.

    I agree it wouldn't be good to do that.

    i'm not entirely sure myself. It happened six/seven years ago when i was in acute psychiatric detention, and definitely includes a written formal caution for assault, and may include something even worse than that.

    But i am waiting for a enhanced criminal record check to come back, before fully deciding on what to do.

    That being said i am hoping to be able to do a purely academic masters, with no working in a teaching capacity at all, which i am hoping that i will be able to do, after all.

    I find out on monday.

    Oh right, don't worry about it! I hope everything goes fine with your application for your masters.
    I wish you the best of luck for Monday!

    Cautions will always remain on a person's record.

    I'm not sure Neal. It all happened when i was in a bad space, and being very naughty. I hope that i haven't, but some things have happened recently such as i couldn't even get an interview for a local supermarket job near my house, and was turned down at the door for a number of charity shop jobs, which would lead me to believe that i do have a conviction.

    They probably put one on my record in 2010, for something which i was called to answer charges for, but i wasn't able to make it to the police station (because i was in 24 hour lockdown in a lincolnshire low secure psychiatric detention centre.)

    Hopefully all this will mean is that i can't do the placement component of the education masters, but as i said i find out on monday.

    yours is a spent caution then, hence you don't need to disclose it? or are uni students classed as vulnerable people for the purposes of the 1974 act?? surely that seems unlikely?

    ahh right good luck for the future mate, it seems harsh of them to penalise you if you are trying to do good in life tbh. I hope you get the position I am sure you will win the relevant people over

    Thanks Neal, my caution will never be spent, because it involves a serious offence (assault). Even if i do claim it was acting in self defence.

    I have tried to turn my life around that is right. And I have done a good job at it as well. Getting a 2.1 from Derby last month in Sociology with theatre studies recently.

    Hopefully i can wing it with the powers that be when i see them next week, but i'm not trying to excuse what i have done. Just put it in context!
