This post is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 because it is a post which involves working directly with children or young people. You are therefore required to declare whether you have any criminal convictions (or cautions or bind-overs) including those which are “spent”. The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are 'protected' and are not subject to disclosure to employers , and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website:

Do you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not "protected" as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013) – or equivalent in other countries in which you have lived? If yes please give details here.

Are you included in any list of people barred from working with children by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or the NCTL (National College of Teaching and Leadership) – or equivalent in other countries in which you have lived? If yes please give details here.

Do you consider yourself disabled? (The Disability Discrimination Act says that this would be “a substantial or long term physical or mental impairment or health issue which could adversely affect your ability to carry on normal day to day activity”) If yes, please state the nature of your disability.

Visa Status and validity period (if currently in Nepal)

Please make sure your file names include only alphanumeric characters (no special characters).

Please Note

  • If your application is successful, prior to taking up your post, you will be required to undergo a Formal Disclosure process through the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously CRB). This will require you to complete a separate DBS application form and to provide a range of more than one piece of documentary evidence of your identity.
  • Although a criminal record involving offences against children is likely to debar you from appointment of this type of post, the existence of other criminal convictions will not necessarily be a bar to employment.
  • Any criminal record information arising out of the disclosure process will be discussed with you before any final decision is made about your employment.

Only complete applications, including all the documents listed above, will be considered. It should be understood that nothing in this form constitutes a contract.
