At the Fashion Retail Academy, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is paramount. We expect all our staff and prospective staff to share this commitment.
Consequently, we are committed to adopting the most robust recruitment procedures. The Academy’s recruitment procedures ensure that all staff and volunteers who come into our premises are subject to the highest level of checks applicable to the work they are carrying out. These include an identity check, a right to work check, an enhanced DBS check, overseas criminal record checks (where applicable), comprehensive employment reference checks (including reasons for any gaps in employment), prohibition from teaching checks (where applicable), verification of relevant qualifications, and online searches to identify any incidents or issues that need to be discussed with the applicant before commencing work at the FRA, to ensure their suitability to work with our students.
