It is required by law to get DBS checks for Career Advisors, but the level will depend on who they will be working with.
Working with Under 18s
If the applicant will be working with people under 18, then they will require an Enhanced DBS Check
What Does an Enhanced DBS Check Show?
Enhanced DBS checks show a history of all spent and unspent convictions, final warnings, reprimands, as well as any information that the local police consider relevant for disclosure.
Working with Over 18s
However, if they will be working with people who are over 18, they will only need a Basic DBS check.
What Does a Basic DBS Check Show?
A Basic DBS check will show any unspent criminal convictions, cautions, and reprimands.
If there are any of these on the applicant’s check, you will be able to see them when viewing the certificate.
