• Attend regularly. If you need to miss a session, please let us know in advance.

• Complete the course.
• Complete all the assessments.

Although placement is not required to obtain this qualification, we encourage learners to carry out some voluntary work to gain experience.
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS): DBS checks are carried out on everyone who works with, or trains to work with, children, young people and vulnerable adults. BAES will carry out these checks before you start a work placement that is part of a social care course, along with a right to work check.
For enrolment on social care courses and for your DBS check you must provide original, approved documents which give evidence of your identity and address.
To get a full DBS check you must have been resident in this country for at least five years. If you have not been resident for at least 5 years, you must also produce a Statement of Good Conduct (written in English) from your previous country BEFORE you can be enrolled onto a social care course.
If you have a criminal record which may bar you from working with children, young people and vulnerable adults, please discuss this with a member of staff before enrolling, as all previous convictions and cautions will be disclosed and this could prevent you from qualifying.
A Right to Work check will also be carried out.
