Safeguarding and Wellbeing of Students and Staff

Richmond and Hillcroft Adult and Community College are committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of students and staff. This process begins with our safer recruitment process which involves using the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for enhanced clearance checks for all staff, seeking references from previous employers, confirming the identity of all appointees, and checking that they have a right to work in the UK. No candidate will be allowed to commence active duty within the College, until our safer recruitment process has been fully completed to the required standards.

As part of our recruitment process shortlisted candidates may be subject to online and social media check.
