Advice to agencies re CRB Checks (March '08) - this note sets out the current arrangements by the programme to carry out CRB checks and otherwise enquire about issues which might affect a student's suitability to join the programme and work in social work/social care settings. Several students have reported requests by agencies for them to produce a new CRB declaration before they can undertake the full range of practice learning opportunities in the placement. For those of you who have suggested this, I hope this advice will reassure you about students' status and allow you not to make this additional requirement of them. Thank you.
