The post for which you have applied is defined as exempted employment under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Amendment Order 1986 which means that you are required to declare “spent” convictions which you would not normally be required to declare if applying for other types of employment.

This means that the detail of any previous conviction(s) must be disclosed, regardless of when it was or what it was for.

All candidates must complete the appropriate sections of this form. The form must then be brought to your interview and given to the Chair of the Interview Panel. It is emphasised that ex-offenders will only be assessed on their ability to do the job applied for and convictions will only be taken into account if relevant to the job.

(a) If you have had a previous conviction(s), regardless of when it was or what it was for, or if you have a court appearance pending please supply details below. An additional sheet can be submitted if required. This must be folded and sealed within this form.

(b) If you have no previous convictions, or if you do not have a court appearance pending go straight to the DECLARATION section and sign and date accordingly.

19. Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003 (POCA)
On 10 January 2005, the Protection of Chidren (Scotland) Act 2003 (POCA) came into force and one of its key provisions was to establish a Scottish list of adults Disqualified from Working with Children (DWCL). The purpose of POCA is to protect children from abuse from adults. Consequently, it is an offence for individuals on the DWCL list to apply for childcare position or for the Sport Aberdeen to employ individuals who are on the list.
