Bi-Component & Study Visits Clean Criminal Record
Visiting teachers need to show evidence of no criminal convictions.
Teachers may not enter a UK school without this.
The Criminal Record should not be more than 6 months old on commencement of the course.
Try to obtain an official copy in English.
If the Criminal Record is only in the native language, an English translation is needed, certified by the Head Teacher/Principal/Training Manager or other responsible person. They should write “I certify that this is a true translation in English of the original” and sign, date (and stamp if possible).
Visiting teachers may obtain a copy of their Criminal Record at any time but it must be dated less than 6 months before their course commencement.
- PDF copies must be e-mailed as soon as possible to the Course Provider.
- The original paper copy (with the certified translation if necessary) must be taken with you to give to the shadowing school on the first day.
