PGCE and PGDE Students

If you are a non-salaried PGCE or PGDE offer-holder, you will be required to complete an Enhanced DBS Check through the University of Warwick. Please see information at the following page for instructions on the process: DBS Application Process

What is a Prohibition Order Check and how do I complete this?

A Prohibition Order List Check is a requirement for offer-holders to the following courses: PGCE, PGDE, Early Years Initial Teacher Training and Assessment Only Route to QTS.

It is a check on whether an applicant has any current teaching prohibitions, restrictions or sanctions, for example teachers who have been banned from teaching in England by the NCTL. It is not the same as a Children's Barred List Check.

For offer-holders where we are completing your DBS Check, we will automatically complete a Prohibition Order Check for you once your DBS Check is in progress with the DBS.

For offer-holders where your employer/ employing school is completing your DBS Check, they will complete the Prohibition Order Check for you. We will require confirmation that this check has been completed as part of the Vetting Check Form.
