How to apply for a DBS Check through Blue Tutors

1. Please ensure that you have thoroughly read the information on DBS Checks.
NB: You must be a tutor with us to apply for a DBS Check.

2. Email us at, stating that you would like to apply for a DBS Check, and confirming your current address. We will then post the Check application form to you.

3. Complete the form, carefully following our advice on completing your check application form.

With the application form you will also have to include originals, and photocopies of the requested identity documents (our advice on completing the form explains what you must send), and make a payment of £45 to our account (Account number: 80808601, Sort code: 20-37-21, Your reference: Initial Surname DBS) which we will forward to SoapBox Training Trust (the third party charitable organisation which processes DBS Checks for us).

Send the form and documents to:

Blue Tutors
Apartment 3
Ponsbourne Manor
Newgate Street Village
SG13 8QR

We strongly recommend that you send this by recorded delivery. We cannot accept responsibility for any documents that do not reach us.

4. Once received, we will return your identity documents to you. The copies, completed application form, and payment will be sent to Soapbox to be processed.

When your application is processed the check will be sent to you, and we will be informed of the date and reference number. We will also be told if we should request to view your check ourselves (if there are any recorded convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings), and if so you should send the check to us.

In total the entire application process takes 4-6 weeks.
