The Education (Health Standards) (England) Regulations 2003 require that Powertutors must ensure that a person has the health and physical capacity to teach. These regulations fall within an exception of the Equality Act 2010 legislation which permits health questions to be asked in so far as this is necessary to determine the ability of the applicant to undertake an intrinsic function of the work.
If your personal health circumstances change at any time which may impact your ability to work as a tutor for Fleet Tutors, then please advise us immediately.
Powertutors requests tutors to hold a current enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) certification and to undergo a new check every three years unless you are subscribed to the Update Service. Any offer of assignment from Powertutors is subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check. You are required, before accepting any appointment, to disclose any conviction, caution or binding over including “spent” convictions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975. Disclosure of a criminal background will not necessarily debar you from working with us – this will depend upon the nature of the offence(s) and when they occurred. Non-disclosure may lead to termination of your service contract with us.
The Department for Education (DfE) recently issued an update to its statutory guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education”.
This requires organisations which provide care for pupils under the age of 8, to ensure that staff ,volunteers or tutors working in these settings are not disqualified from doing so under the Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2018.
A person may be disqualified through
Having certain orders or other restrictions placed upon them
Having committed certain offences
You are required therefore to sign the declaration at the end of this application form confirming that you are not disqualified under those regulations.
A disqualified person is not permitted to continue to work in a setting providing care for children under the age of 8, unless they apply for and are granted a waiver from OFSTED.
Please answer Yes or No to the following. *
