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.
