Q: How do I put through a Garda Vetting application with Early Childhood Ireland?
- The owner/manager asks the Garda Vetting applicant to complete the NVB1 Vetting Invitation form making sure to sign, date and tick the consent box in pen.
There is a special Vetting Invitation Form for Under 18’s and a parent consent form
The applicant provides you with photo identification and proof of address- acceptable Identification is listed on the NVB1 Vetting Form.
You then keep these 3 documents in the employee file along with their vetting disclosure when it comes through.
- The Early Childhood Ireland member logs in to our website -you may need to reset your password if this is the first time you have logged in to our new website.Then you enter the applicants’ information from the NVB1 form into our online Garda Vetting website form. You will notice that your membership number is already completed in the membership field.B. Please don’t enter any punctuation or extra spaces, n/a etc when entering the information as the system is very sensitive. You only need to enter the applicants current address over 3 boxes. If the applicant currently lives overseas, you can enter their overseas address. Make sure the regional postcode is in the postcode box.
If you think you have made a mistake when inputting the form please do not re-enter the information as this will cause duplication in the system. You can let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will amend the vetting application for you.
