Hi all, I am REALLY frustrated and nearly at the point of despair. I have registered with an agency who were really good and got me on their system quickly. However, it's our "fantastic government" that have dragged their heals about my DBS. It initially reached the 60 day marker, and they then sent an email (a fat lot of good that did) to the respective police who twiddled their thumbs for another 14 days before I was able to rip into them personally and get the check moving. To my despair, I find that they have sent it back to the "wonderful" DBS people with a query, who in turn have sent it back to the police. Now it's back with the police, another email (again, I don't see how this will help) has been sent to the police force to hurry it up. I noticed recently that the checks have gone from stage 4 on the tracking service BACK to stage 2 and 3!! Meanwhile, I am losing money hand over fist and am in need of work (although I am now working casually as an event steward, despite holding a full door supervisors licence....and those DBS checks came through MUCH quicker!). I have recovered from a serious injury and left my previous employment with a payout which has dwindled down. I need to get back into work, for my own sanity and to get back t what I enjoy most....teaching! Any help or advice would be most welcomed.
