Before you start

The service will ask you to outline the kind of experience you offer including details about DBS-checks and any fees you charge candidates.

It's your responsibility to decide if candidates comply with your school DBS and safeguarding policies.

I do not have a DfE Sign-in account

You’ll need to ask your organisation’s ‘DfE Sign-in approver’ (often your head or deputy head) to create a DfE Sign-in account for you.

They’ll need your email address but make sure this is one that only you have access to.

It will only be used for DfE Sign-in purposes and we won’t use it to send you anything to do with the service.

If you don’t know who's your DfE Sign-in approver email us with your URN at
