I'm looking around a few websites but don't know if there is any difference - or indeed a similar scam going to that perpetrated by passport admin websites.

That's an overview of how the procedure happens, I'm looking for some kind of application form.

You can't apply as an individual, it has to be through a registered body (such as an employer, or for example Ofsted if you're registering as a childminder)

So you need to ask the registered body for a form.

As far as I know the organisation that you will be working for has to arrange it, as you have to have one done for each company/school/whatever.

I'm self employed and I need it for the new contract work I have just started.

I'll be working with more than 12 companies/schools etc...eek!

You might do better with this than their customer services e mail. They have 3 days left to answer my e mail query. Getting impatient!!!

Get one via one of the schools, they are now transferable for up to 3 months so 1 will cover all 12 sites.

There's a link further down the page for when you need to get one for yourself.

What about the LEA responsible for the schools you'll be working in? Contact them for advice.
