Recruitment Policy & School Compliance

Class Cover has undergone rigorous inspection and vetting to achieve the REC Audited Education Status awarded by the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation). The Recruitment and Selection Policy forms part of the Quality Mark standard. All of our teachers, teaching assistants and support staff are vetted according to these government regulations:

  • Interviewed face to face – an intensive and thorough process which sets us apart from many other teaching recruitment services.
  • Identity checked – we verify the identity of each teacher against official photo documents such as a passport or driving licence in addition to a birth certificate.
  • DBS and Barred list checked.
  • Qualification checked – we insist on seeing original documents and keep copies for our files. If certificates are not available we contact the DfE/GTC or the applicant’s training provider.
  • Reference checked – our teachers must be referenced for more than five years and for each teacher we require at least two independent referees.
  • Health checked – all our teachers must complete a medical declaration.
  • Identified for security purposes with a Class Cover card which they must carry with them at all times when on school premises.
  • Child protection training checked – evidence is required or training provided.
  • Given access to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) through our training programmes.
