If you need a disclosure and barring service (DBS) check to complete work placement for your course, you can make payment here. You can find further details about paying and applying for a DBS check here.
Do I need a DBS check?
Students on the following courses require a DBS check:
- All Health and Social Care students (including T-Level)
- All Childcare and Early Years students (including T-Level)
If you're planning to study one of the above courses, it's really important that you make payment before your course begins in September.
If you doing a different course but have secured work placement with an employer who works with young people (for example, you might complete work experience at a school as an IT engineer), you should pay for your DBS check here when advised to do so by your work placement and careers coordinator.
If your household income is less than £35,000 per annum, you may be eligible for our financial support scheme which, if approved, will cover the full cost of your DBS check. You complete an application for this on our website here.
What happens next?
Your work placement and careers coordinator will need to see your evidence and will inform you how to complete the DBS process. this should be completed shortly after your course begins. You will need to provide evidence to submit your application - further details of what evidence is required can be found here. You should prepare this evidence ready for September.
