Supply Hive is dedicated to ensuring children's safety and well-being. To make sure we comply with the DfE's statutory advice on "Keeping Children Safe in Education," we conduct safeguarding checks on all employees. Every applicant needs to undergo or has already undergone a legitimate enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) investigation. Complete support is offered.
In order to make sure an applicant is qualified to work with children and young adults in an educational setting, we will also conduct a number of additional checks. We use the same procedures that a school would use when hiring their staff, making our compliance and vetting process among the most stringent in the industry.
