KCSIE - Brexit-led changes

The statutory guidance has been amended following the UK leaving the EU. The new version can be accessed here.

References to checking Teacher Services for EEA sanctions have been removed. KCSIE includes new advice about how schools and colleges can check the past conduct of individuals who have lived and worked overseas. In addition to the checks required for all staff,  checks for overseas applicants could include, where available, overseas criminal record checks and for those seeking teaching positions, obtaining a letter of professional standing from the professional regulating authority in the country in which the applicant has worked.

See paragraph 172 of KCSIE for full information.
