Set up, apply, verify – three simple steps for your next DBS check

If your staff or volunteers need to be checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service, the DBS Team at Hackney Learning Trust offer a quick online process that can help you obtain the correct level of DBS disclosure. There’s no more paper, no more postage, and no more frustration.

Why Hackney Learning Trust?

The online DBS service as well as their dedicated DBS professionals help employers to make safer recruitment decisions faster, saving you time and money. They have extensive experience of the DBS process and have operated as a registered body with the DBS since the introduction of CRB checks in 2002.

They are not an anonymous IT company and understand your needs because they’re in the education sector and are extremely experienced as their staff and schools also require DBS disclosures.

Additionally, any income made from the service is reinvested straight back into education, as Hackney Learning Trust is a not for profit organisation, built to transform education in Hackney and beyond.

Who should use the service?

Any organisation which requires their staff to hold a Standard or Enhanced DBS disclosure can use the service. They specialise in checks on behalf of schools, voluntary and charitable organisations, and the online DBS is a valuable facility for any public sector organisation.

How does it work?

The simple online process works in 3 easy steps – you set up, apply and verify. The team then check, countersign and submit the application to the DBS.

Applications are automatically tracked and e-mail reminders are sent at each stage, with notification coming direct from the DBS when checks are complete. The team will even provide free HR advice on your application outcomes.

There are no paper application forms to complete, and the online form is automatically validated, meaning errors and returned forms are a thing of the past – and the majority of results come back from the DBS within two days.
