In the UK any person working in a position that involves substantial contact with children and young people under the age of 18 year of age or other vulnerable members of society is required to beĀ  verified for relevant criminal convictions. This is called a CRB Checked (The Criminal Records Bureau). Having worked as a photographer for over 20 years with theatre schools means I have had this check. Additionally I have undergone safeguarding training and have attained Level 2 Award in Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Young People (QCF).
