Join BVA and Cathy Taylor, Stakeholder Engagement Adviser, from the Disclosure and Barring Service to gain an understanding of DBS.
Cathy Taylor, Stakeholder Engagement Adviser, from the Disclosure and Barring Service will be holding a workshop for members of the Basingstoke Voluntary Action covering:
- the role of the DBS,
- benefits of the DBS and your organisation working together,
- understanding the different levels of DBS checks and when individuals are eligible for them,
- what regulated activity is in both the children and adult’s workforce
- how DBS checks can form part of safer recruitment practices.
The workshop is aimed at those who have responsibility for engaging with DBS processes and legislation within their organisation so this could be those who decide on levels of checks, carry out recruitment or manage staff in regulated activity or have responsibility for safeguarding or trustees.
BVA is an umbrella organisation for the processing of DBS.
