Inspire Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, other workers and volunteers to share this commitment.

TRC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A copy of the child protection policy statement is available on our college website (www.thomroth.ac.uk). This commitment to safer recruitment and child protection demands that stringent checks be made on potential employees.
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks – appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced clearance from the DBS and all employees will also be checked against the Children’s Barred List and Adult’s Barred List. An assessment will be made as to whether an employee can start work before this clearance is received.
Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working for us as we do not discriminate against ex-offenders. We will only take account of previous convictions if the nature of the offence is relevant to the type of work you would be doing. In your application tell us about any ‘unspent’ convictions you may have as defined in the rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. All Thomas Rotherham College employees who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably trained to identify and assess relevance and circumstances of offences.
However, if a risk assessment of the post has indicated that the post is exempt from the act, you will need to tell us about all ‘spent’ and ‘unspent’ convictions and cautions as part of your application. If successful at the selection stage, we will conditionally offer you the post while we contact the DBS to assess your suitability for the position.
The advert and the person specification will tell you whether the job is exempt and if a disclosure will be requested.
