Education

For the Education industry, the majority of Screening is informed by the Department for Education’s statutory guidance on Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) and Working Together to Safeguard Children. Reed Screening has over 100 years of combined experience working in Education Screening, and understand that quite apart from the statutory obligations organisations must adhere to and the rightly heavy penalties for breaching them, there is a far greater moral imperative to ensure that the staff you employ hold to the highest standards of professional and ethical integrity.

Reed Screening provides screening packages designed specifically for the needs of the Education industry, with packages pre-tailored to mitigate risk when hiring for popular roles such as Maintenance, Hospitality and Facilities staff, Finance and Admin staff, or Teachers, Lecturers and Support staff. We cover everything from permanent hires and fixed term contractors, to temporary/agency supply chain.

We can assure you that all your workers are screened to the high standard you need to ensure that your establishment is operating safely, efficiently and with appropriately qualified, responsible, and reliable staff.
