Dear Student ,

                 Congratulations on being made an offer of a place at this university. In order for you to
work in an environment with people under the age of 18 or vulnerable adults, you are required to obtain
a check at the advanced level. Since the search at the CRB may take some time you are strongly
advised to undertake this exercise as soon as possible. In order to gain the CRB clearance the
University will require a completed photograph identification and CRB form, documentary evidence to
confirm your identity and a proof of payment.

In order to confirm your identity for the CRB application the university will require three out of the six
documents below (this must include either your Passport or Drivers License ID card +Paper Part

                 5. P45/60
                 6. Marriage Certificate

The cost of obtaining the disclosure is £36 and can be paid online via the University’s online store
which can be found at . Please print a copy of the receipt
and enclose it along with the application form

There are two ways of getting your CRB processed, either by post or by attending a designated CRB

The university will check your details and return your documents by recorded delivery; we will then
send the completed application from off to the CRB. Please note that the university will NOT accept a
CRB disclosure from another institution

          below for guidance on filling out the required sections.

Question B13 should be your current course or the course you’re applying for, please also
include your UCAS/GTTR number or current student number. The address should always be
the Hardwick Campus.
Sections C & D

Question C20 should also be filled out if you have indicated your title as Ms on the front page
Section D should be completed if you’ve lived at your current address for less than five years. If
you need additional paper then please write your name and form reference number (on front of

            Some important points to note about your CRB application
    1. You can track your applications progress online via the CRB’s website. In
       order to do this you must make a note of your form reference number,
       this can be found on the top right of your application form. The tracker
       can be found on the following link

    2. The University will get sent a copy of the CRB disclosure at the same time
       as the applicant. It is vitally important you do not lose your copy as the
       University destroys its copy after 6 months. Should an applicant lose their
       copy there is no other choice but to apply for another disclosure, this
       could delay or even prevent students attending their placements.

    3. It is unfortunate but CRB disclosures do get lost in the post, please keep
       checking the status of your application to see whether it has been printed
       and sent by the CRB. If your disclosure has been sent but does not arrive
       at your address then you have 90 days to ask for a reprint.

 If you have any further questions regarding CRB applications then
                  please contact Darren Leader on
