    Privacy Notice – End Point Assessment (GDPR)

    *Health and physical capacity to teach

    Kingsbridge have a responsibility to ensure that candidates on the programme have the health and physical capacity to teach and will not put children and young people at risk of harm.

    The Education (Health Standards) (England) Regulations 2003 sets out the activities that a teacher must be able to perform. Providers are responsible for ensuring that they only accept, onto a programme, candidates who have the capacity to teach.

    Successful applicants offered a place may complete a fitness questionnaire. We do not ask all-encompassing health questions but should ensure they only ask targeted and relevant health-related questions which are necessary to ensure that a person is able to teach.

    *Disclosure and Barring Service checks

    All our policies and procedures have regard to the Keeping Children Safe in Education statutory guidance to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. All candidates are subject to appropriate pre-selection checks inline with our Safer Recruitment Procedures. This will include obtaining and considering DBS criminal records checks and children’s barred list information. We retain records showing that applicants have obtained these.

     We also ensure that all candidates are provided with the following:

    • the child protection policy
    • the staff behaviour policy (sometimes called a code of conduct)
    • information about the role of the designated safeguarding lead
    • the statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education

    As a provider; we strongly recommend to applicants that they register with the DBS update service.

    *Other background checks

    Individuals who are unsuited to working with children may not have any previous convictions, and providers should be vigilant during the selection process. Providers and employing schools have a duty to ensure that trainees are properly managed and supervised and that, if they have concerns, information is referred to the police and the DBS.

    Candidates who have lived or worked outside the UK must undergo the same checks as all other staff in schools and colleges. In addition, further checks should be carried out so that events that occurred outside the UK can be considered. The Home Office has published guidance on criminal record checks for overseas applicants.

    Providers and employers must check that candidates are not:

    • subject to a prohibition order issued by the Secretary of State
    • prohibited to teach in another country of the European Economic Area (EEA)

    The lists of prohibited teachers is on the Teacher Services System.

    *Childcare disqualification

    Providers must have regard to the Disqualification under the Childcare Act 2006 statutory guidance and related obligations under the Childcare Act 2006 when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

    *Accessing Bursaries

    Bursaries and scholarships are available to trainees on a fee-based teacher training course in England that leads to the award of qualified teacher status. Availability is dependent on your highest relevant academic award and the subject in which you are training to teach. To receive a bursary or scholarship you must be entitled to support under the Student Finance England criteria. Both elements will be assessed by Kingsbridge. If you have a degree from outside the UK, you should refer to the overseas degree equivalency table to see the bursary your egree may attract. You can also contact your training provider for clarification on your degree’s equivalency and your eligibility for a bursary and student finance.
