Criminal background check procedures

CIS leads the way in promoting high standards of child protection through effective recruitment. We were the first organisation providing international educational recruitment services to require a full criminal background check history of our candidates, which is aligned with the recommendations of the International Taskforce on Child Protection. Our schools are expressly committed to ensuring student well-being and safety and a crucial aspect of this is screening potential employees. We support our teachers with meeting this requirement by providing advice and resources. Our child protection workshops provide training to school leaders and counsellors that empower schools to build robust child safeguarding policies and effective reporting procedures.

We recommend you gather background checks from every country where you have worked. Use the below resources to learn how to request this information.
