At Alex Elliot Consultancy (AEC) we pride ourselves on a strict vetting procedure for all our candidates so that you as the school can rest assured that staff are fully checked to a high standard when visiting you on a short, long term or permanent basis.

All candidates will undergo or come equipped with:

An initial pre-vet call to find out each candidate’s exact requirements and what they are looking for. This also allows us to assess their capabilities and experience, to allow us to make an informed decision as to whether they will be an asset to you as a school.

Face to Face interview following a successful pre-vet call, all candidates will be invited for a face to face interview with us to go through the clearance process and get to know the individual better. This is our opportunity to collate their documentation to apply for their enhanced DBS and issue them with their AEC Candidate Passport that will be brought with them to every booking.

Enhanced Child workforce DBS on the Update Service all candidates will come equipped with an enhanced Child Workforce DBS that will be on the update service and will be presented on arrival at school and remain with them at all times.

6 years of career History all candidates will be asked during the pre-vet call for a break down of their career history dating back for the last 6 years. This will be clearly highlighted on their AEC CV that will be available to you as a potential employer when recruiting.

2 graded references will be taken and received for each candidate from their 2 most recent employers from the 6-year career history.

QTS check (if applicable) will be completed for all teaching staff to ensure that they have the relevant qualification to teach in the UK.

Qualification AEC will have on record each candidate’s most relevant qualification on file as a minimum requirement.


Overseas Criminal Clearance If a candidate has spent a period of 6 or more months either living or working overseas in the last 6 years it is a requirement that they obtain Overseas Criminal Clearance from the country/countries in which they resided.
