What is the DBS Self Update Service?
In 2013 the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) introduced the ‘Update Service’. This means that once an online DBS has been processed employers and organisations can remain in control of viewing updates and changes to individual’s DBS certificates. Schools are required to do this on the first time you teach for them and it means if you are not registered for the Self Updating Service Vibe Arts cannot place you in a school.
How do I know if my DBS is on the Self Update Service?
If you already have a DBS the application for the update service has to be carried out by you, the individual holding the DBS. It is not something an organisation can do on your behalf though they may advise you to register. Therefore, unless you registered for the Self Update Service it will not be self updating.
What are the benefits of the Update Service?
One DBS certificate is all you may ever need
Your DBS is transferrable between organisations and theatre schools where
the same type and level of check is required.
How do I join the Update Service?
To join the Update Service you have to do so within 19 calendar days of the DBS certificate issue date. A subscription to the update service lasts for one year. You can renew your subscription through the update service, either when you first register, by choosing automatic renewal OR within the last 30 days of your current subscription – but you can’t renew on the last day of your subscription. It costs £13 a year
I have an Enhanced DBS Check but it is older than 19 days and I didn't register for the Update Service
We will need to make a new application for an Enhanced DBS check through Vibe Arts. This costs roughly £55. Then you will have to pay £13 for the years Update Service. Going forward, that £13 a year should be the only cost as your DBS will then be transferable.
