What is a CRB check?
CRB stands for Criminal Records Bureau and the process involves checking your details for criminal records and convictions. The CRB check will either confirm that you don’t have a criminal record, or it will list any relevant convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings that you have received.
You cannot apply for a CRB check on yourself. Only organizations registered with the CRB can submit applications for criminal records checks. There are two types of registered organization:
- An employer
- An umbrella body that processes criminal record checks for non-registered organizations.
The Tutor Website prefers that tutors have CRB checks although it is not a requirement to be registered on the site. For more information on CRB checks for private tutors please visit the Direct Gov Website.
