Every school system should be using a central single record system when it comes to recruiting employees. When it comes to hiring a new teacher or any member of the school staff, it’s very important that you take a great deal of care. Checks must be conducted to ensure that the person has no negative marks on their profile. There are several different things that you need to check before you consider hiring the person. Some of the main things that you need to look for include the following:
- Identity checks
- Eligibility to work in the United Kingdom
- Enhanced DBS disclosure
- ISA number
- Any criminal checks (even overseas)
You need to maintain a single central record for all employees working in your organisation. It’s imperative that you maintain a list and share it with your HR staff to properly safeguard the children that you work with. Here are a few things that you should know about the central single record system.
It is vitally important that you record each and every detail in the central record file, including prior employment details and information on all the staff members that you currently employ, and a list of previous employees as well.
Maintain It Regularly
Put in remarks and notes on a consistent basis and update the central record file as frequently as you can. This will allow you to keep a solid record about each employee that works for your organisation and make sure that all hiring is done with care.
