In order to meet our criteria, your DBS check must be:
1. Less than 3 years old
2. An Enhanced Disclosure certificate - this means that there are 5 fields which all are requested
3. From the UK, not Scotland or Ireland. This is because other countries, including Scotland and Ireland, keep their own Children's and Vulnerable Adults' Barred Lists, and as you will be working in England it must be relevant to England.
NB: If your CRB is more than 3 years old or not fully enhanced, you can apply for a new one using this guide.
An example is below:
