Sorry if this is a silly question, I have not had much luck finding info on the DBS website! I currently have a DBS check carried out by my employing school in September 2014, it is not portable as far as I am aware. As I am planning to try and drum up supply privately I assume that I need to apply independently for a DBS. Do I just start from scratch and apply directly for a full check as a private individual? I have never done this independently so feel a little uncertain.
