Criminal Convictions, disciplinary action and vulnerable adults and children

Information for for Social Work Applicants

All members of social work courses are required to apply for an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check, which will reveal details of any cautions or convictions.

Whilst a caution or conviction may not be a barrier to accessing the programme, some agencies may refuse to provide placements to students with convictions. If they do this we will be unable to offer a place on the course.

Failure to declare cautions and convictions, including driving offences, is viewed very seriously and will normally result in students being asked to withdraw from the course.

You will also be required to declare if you have ever been subject to any disciplinary action, or if you have ever been subject to an allegation involving child protection issues and/or the abuse or neglect of vulnerable adults.

Failure to declare disciplinary action or an allegation involving child protection issues and/or the abuse or neglect of vulnerable adults is viewed very seriously and will normally result in students being asked to withdraw from the course.

 

 

This programme has been endorsed by TCSW as having met the social work professional quality criteria.
