  3. Any convictions or charges should always be declared when you have your CRB check. It is up to the individual course providers to assess the details of your CRB check, and then inform you of their decision in writing.
    As any decision is at the discretion of the individual course providers, it is not possible for me to say whether or not your application would be rejected. However I can confirm that you would not be turned away automatically, and that it is certainly not uncommon for applicants who have received cautions to be accepted onto an initial teacher training course.
    The CRB check forms just one part of the application process, with many other factors being taken into account before a decision is reached. You are already doing the best thing possible to strengthen your application, which is to be gaining current classroom experience. This will be seen positively by course providers, and clearly indicates your enthusiasm for teaching.
