EdStaff Ltd – Criminal Convictions Declaration

    Note to candidates:

    Before completing this section please read our policy regarding candidates with criminal convictions (Recruitment of Ex Offenders Policy).

    This form must be completed by candidates seeking work in roles which are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. For this reason you are required to disclose information about both spent and unspent convictions.

    Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offence that is considered unfiltered? Or cautioned?

    You are not required to declare any information about ‘protected’ offences (offences to which the filtering rules apply). You can contact organisations such as NACRO or Unlock for further assistance. A full list of offences that will never be filtered from a DBS certificate can be found at:


    Do you have any spent or unspent criminal convictions?

    If yes, please provide the offence dates, dates of conviction/caution, offence types and sentences below

    You are not required to provide any information about protected (filtered) offences

    If you have declared any convictions you are welcome to provide us with any additional information that you think may be relevant and which will help us to determine your suitability to be put forward for roles with our clients. This could include for example information about the circumstances of the offence, any work (paid or voluntary) or training that you have undertaken since, change in your circumstances etc.

    We will seek to put forward/supply the best possible candidates to our clients. Having a criminal conviction will not necessarily exclude you from the process.

    Failure to declare a conviction may require us to exclude you from our register if the offence is not declared but later comes to light. If you are working in an assignment with a client at the time that we are made aware of a conviction that have not disclosed to us, we may be legally required to inform our client of that information and your assignment may be terminated.

    You are required to update us in the event that you are subject to any kind of investigation or prosecution relating to a criminal act and/or which could lead to a conviction after the most recent DBS/Update Service check was undertaken. Please give assurance that you will update us by signing below.
