The Vetting and Barring Scheme (VBS): School or Further Education College exchanges
Headteachers and principals should be aware that the new Vetting and Barring Scheme does not impose requirements on organisers of exchanges or visits where children or young people stay with host families.
It will not require organisers to check registration with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) if the child's parents accept responsibility for the choice of host adults (unpaid volunteers acting as private foster parents).
Further information on the Vetting and Barring Scheme may be found on the ISA website.
To read a note regarding the new exception from ISA registration in relation to the host families for school and FE college exchanges, please download the document below.
