We understand the need for all schools and colleges to comply with the Department for Education Statutory guidance, in accordance with “Keeping Children Safe in Education”. Moreover, we also understand the potential minefield that this has become as different staff types require different types of checks. Maintaining the traditional single central record excel spreadsheet has become outdated, time consuming and complicated.

Single Central Record Ltd takes away this worry, ensuring that every school is fully Ofsted and ISI compliant, and follows best practice through their easy to use, affordable, online single central record. It links up directly with an online DBS check system, which has been known to process an enhanced disclosure in a mere 26 minutes, making it arguably the fastest provider in the UK. In fact, all mandatory checks are continuously monitored by the single central record. They can be ordered at the click of a button and the results are automatically uploaded back into the online platform!
Single Central Record have built an amazing product, so it comes as no surprise that over the last week alone, 29 educational establishments have registered their interest to use it.

Developed by a UK based development team, Single Central Record is a dynamic online platform for educational establishments in the UK and overseas.

Single Central Record was formed from the automated, streamline processes of APCS - an independent company established in 2002 who process DBS applications for over 10,000 clients across the globe. Combining over fifty years of expertise in the Education sector, Single Central Record have developed a market leading, UK first, online single central record. Mark Gardner, the CEO of both companies said “By working alongside Head Teachers, schools and various consultants, it is fantastic that after 4 years we have created a state of the art Online Single Central Record that keeps educational establishments up to date and compliant. As a result of this, we have created more effective processes for them, which are easy to use, time-saving, improve best practice and ultimately keeps children safer in education”.

Mark Gardner and his team are also finalists in the 2018 UK National Awards for “Business Product and Innovation” and are no stranger to creating successful products and bringing them into the market.
