No background checks
Candidates will need to provide ID, join the PVG scheme (police check) and register with SSSC (professional standing) as well as provide 2 references and submit health information to Occupational Health. These checks take at least 2wks, but often 4wks to complete. New staff cannot start without all safer recruitment checks in place. New staff also need to complete the 7 day block induction training before working on the floor - this training period is paid.
PVG for working with vulnerable individuals
They offer full pvg checks and may ask your former employer about references.
It would be advantageous if you had prior knowledge of autism/working with autistic children and young people as the training provided will not stand you in good stead otherwise.
