Disclosure and Barring Service launches Update Service

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formerly the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) has launched an update service which will allow individuals to apply for a DBS check once and then, if they need a similar sort of check again they can reuse their existing certificate, with their organisation checking online to see if it is still up to date. This is great news for self-employed music teachers as the service will avoid many unnecessary repeat applications. Registration for this service will cost £13 a year.
