Level of Disclosure
The type and level of disclosure requested of applicants is a standard disclosure, which relates to positions that involve regular contact with those aged under 18 years or people of any age who may be vulnerable for any other reasons. This disclosure will contain details of all criminal convictions on record, including current and spent convictions, and details of any cautions or warnings held on the police national database.
If you have a criminal conviction on record, it is advised that you provide details of this from an early stage. All information will only be witnessed by those who need to see it as part of our recruitment process for select placement positions.
On receipt of a certificate that highlights any undisclosed convictions or incidents in an applicant’s past, the Changing Worlds team will consider the following:
- Whether the conviction is relevant to the placement.
- The seriousness of the offence.
- The length of time since the offence.
- Whether the applicant has a pattern of offending.
- The circumstances surrounding the offence and the explanations offered by the convicted person.
Failure to reveal any information that is relevant to the placement position may lead to rejection of an application.
Changing Worlds is committed to insuring that both the applicant is suitable with the community and young people they maybe working with, so even if something does come up as a historic record, this does not necessarily mean a rejection to participate in a Changing Worlds project abroad.
