star this property answer text <p>Criminal record certificates issued by the Disclosure and Barring Service do not expire after a specific period of time and do not include a renewal date. A certificate has no set period of validity. Information revealed through a Disclosure and Barring Service check reflects the information that was available at the time of its issue. Disclosure certificates are primarily designed to be used by an employer at the point of recruitment for a particular position.</p><p> </p><p>Some roles and some employers require the person concerned to “renew” their Disclosure and Barring Service check at specific intervals. The person can do that either by applying for a new certificate or by using the Disclosure and Barring Service Update Service.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Secondary postgraduate recruitment is at its highest level since 2011/12, showing that teaching continues to be an attractive career choice among graduates. It is encouraging that we have the highest number of trainee teachers in science and maths since 2011/12. Physics, traditionally the hardest subject area in which to recruit, is up 15% on 2015/16.</p><p>We recognise the challenge, particularly as the economy continues to strengthen, pupil numbers grow and the demand for talented graduates increases. This is why we continue to focus on recruiting the best graduates, particularly in the core academic subjects such as science and maths.</p><p>Physics trainees receive the highest bursary levels available, reflecting the fact it is a key priority for the Government, and physics graduates are in high demand across the economy. Physics trainees with a first receive a £30,000 bursary, and those trainees with a 2:1 or 2:2 in Maths or Physics receive a £25,000 bursary. Chemistry trainees with a first receive a £25,000 and those with a 2:1 or 2:2 receiving £20,000. Biology trainees receive a bursary of up to £15,000.</p><p>We are also continuing to fund the prestigious scholarship schemes in maths and physics.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the Government has committed £67m to the STEM Teacher Supply Package. This package consists of a number of strands, which aim to improve pupil outcomes in mathematics and physics by improving the quality of teaching in the classroom. The package focuses on achieving this by recruiting a higher proportion of new teachers with specialist STEM backgrounds and providing qualified teachers who are not STEM specialists, but who have a firm grounding in a STEM, with subject specialism training.</p><p> </p><p>Teacher retention has remained broadly stable for the past 20 years, with around 90% of teachers working in a state-funded school the year after qualifying, and around seven out of ten teachers still in the classroom after five years. We recognise the importance of supporting schools to retain good teachers, which is why we have taken action in the areas that teachers tell us are most likely to cause them to consider leaving the profession, such as reducing unnecessary workload and tackling poor pupil behaviour.</p>
