New Safeguards for Children in Schools in Wales, May 2006, [W]

As of the 1st may 2006 it will be a legal requirement for those teachers wishing to register with the General Teaching Council for Wales to undergo an enhanced disclosure as part of the registration process. Prior to now the disclosure checks were recommended but not mandatory. The checks do not replace the vetting that LEAs and schools undertake before a teacher starts a new job.

For further information please see the Assembly’s press release.
