Do I need a DBS check for my course?


If you do, we will clearly state it in the course details and your course offer, and contact you well in advance of your course start date with details of how to apply for a DBS check.

You can find more information on our website - see the link below.

In April 2020 we launched the online DBS check service which makes applying for a DBS certificate easier and faster! We are working with eSafeguarding who are an online DBS checking service. For the vast majority of courses requiring mandatory DBS, you will complete the DBS application and payment online with eSafeguarding rather than via a paper application. 

For any queries relating to DBS please email dbs@bolton.ac.uk
