European Economic Area Check

The European Economic Area (EEA) check is no longer available. From 1 January 2021, professional regulators in the EEA will no longer share information about sanctions imposed on EEA teachers with the Teaching Regulation Agency.

Schools must continue to carry out the same safer recruitment checks on all applicants, including those who have lived or worked outside of the UK, in accordance with statutory guidance: Keeping Children Safe in Education. This includes obtaining an enhanced DBS certificate with barred list information even if the teacher has never been to the UK. For applicants that have lived or worked outside of the UK, schools must also make any further checks they think appropriate so they can consider any relevant events that occurred outside the UK.

If you have any further questions regarding safe recruitment in schools please get in touch with us. APCS provide DBS checks to schools across the country, and we would be delighted to provide checks for your school. Register here today.

Further advice can be found at Changes to checks for EU sanctions on EEA teachers from 1 January 2021 - GOV.UK.
