New vetting and barring scheme - Roadshow
During 2010, employee checks by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) will be complemented with checks from the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) where an additional safeguard is appropriate.
The new vetting and barring scheme will provide extra protection for children and vulnerable adults. All people working with children and vulnerable adults are required to undergo these checks.
Roadshow to introduce the new scheme
As there will be important changes to the current scheme, ISA is inviting those affected to their vetting and barring scheme information roadshow.
Twelve events will be held across the UK and will introduce individuals to the new scheme and provide an understanding of the implications for organisations.
For further information and to register for one of these events, please go to the Vetting and Barring scheme website (link on the right hand side).
