Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, formerly known as CRB checks, are where a person's records are checked to identify past criminal activity, which may present issues for another role. DBS checks are a vital part of the safeguarding process.

Types of check

There are various levels of DBS check, and different roles may require different levels of check. For most roles within Student Robotics, a DBS check is not required. However volunteers in roles with greater exposure to young people may be required to undergo a DBS check. Volunteers will be notified by the Safeguarding Lead if a role they are undertaking requires a DBS check.

DBS Checks from other roles

If you have a DBS check for another organisation, it may or may not be possible to consider it for use with Student Robotics. Please contact the Safeguarding Lead to see if this applies.
