Hello everyone

I have just completed the Cypop5 course and logged into OFSTED's online applical tool yesterday. When It asked about DBS checks, it referred me to the Capita website, but I needed a reference number. Any idea how I get that? Both sites just refer me to the other :(

I suggest you give Ofsted a ring - it's all changed and I know a lot of people find it confusing.

If you ring and tell them they are more likely to get it fixed. Hugs x

You get a number for capita when ofsted have accepted your application, they send it through the post. Mine took about a week x

As of 1st February you need to get your DBS check and medical questionnaire completed before you apply to Ofsted.
