Changes to X61 of Application Form

The DBS has made changes to how verifiers should complete Question X61 'Position applied for' field on the DBS application form. This is because the Police will now use a broader definition of 'Workforce' to assess the relevance of any information that they may consider for release, in place of 'position applied for'. Therefore, you will now need to enter any of the following: 'Child Workforce', 'Adult Workforce' or 'Child and Adult Workforce' on the first line of X61, followed by the actual role title in the line below. You should start to do this right now to ensure that any DBS certificate issued after the update service commences can be  used by the individual when they change roles within the same workforce. Contact CAS on 0207 467 5216 if you have questions.
