9.    Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

       An employer’s ability to make employment decisions based on an individual’s past criminal
       convictions is governed by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The Act specifies that
       after certain periods of time anyone who has been convicted of a criminal offence and who has
       served their sentence be not obliged to disclose past convictions. Any offender whose
       conviction has become ‘spent’ is known as a ‘rehabilitated’ person. However, there are certain
       convictions, depending on the nature of the punishment received and the age of the offender,
       for which a person can never become rehabilitated. These are outlined in Section 5 of the
       1974 Act.

       There is, however exceptions to these entitlements where the non-disclosure of past
       convictions in certain professions and employments would cause wider public concern. These
       exceptions are contained in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions) Order 1975 /
       2001. By virtue of this Order potential employees for the following exempted occupations listed
       are legally obliged to disclose all past spent or unspent convictions.

               Registered teacher;
               Employment or other work which is concerned with the provision care services to
                vulnerable adults and where the worker has access to such adults in the course of his
                / her duties;
               Work in a ‘regulated position’ (covers wide range of jobs involving or in connection
                with children or vulnerable adults and work at establishments where these groups are
                present) or work in a further education institution where normal duties involve regular
                contact with persons under 18 years;
               Other (employer to specify)…………………………………………………………………

       The above list is not exhaustive and merely refers to areas or work that may be relevant to the
       Company’s business.

       Any information given will be treated confidentially and only considered in relation to the post
       for which you are applying.

10.   Disclosure of Criminal Background

      Please complete if the post for which you are applying provides access to children

       of Offenders Act 1974 by virtue of the (Exceptions) Order 1975 to that Act (as amended).

               Date                  Offence               Sentence - Order Caution

       In the event that you are offered the appointment it will be subject to a Criminal Record
       Background Check being made before the appointment can be confirmed. Failure to agree to
       such a check being made will mean that your application cannot be considered. Any
       information provided will be treated as strictly confidential and used only in consideration of
       your suitability for appointment.
