DBS checks

All students need a valid Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The UEA central DBS office will process these for Tutors. More information will be provided on the process once you have been invited to interview. If you already have a current DBS (processed by UEA) then you may not need another check. You will need to show your DBS to both the Outreach team and to your Discover Teaching placement school. 

Eligibility criteria

All UEA students are eligible to apply for the Scheme, but priority will be given to applicants from backgrounds under-represented within higher education.  You can find out more in the Widening Participation Criteria document.
