We have again successfully removed a youth reprimand (now called a youth caution) for a client.

Police Caution and Youth Caution (reprimand) Removal Solicitors

The client, a trainee teacher, had undertaking extensive academic study and teacher training only to be prevented from qualifying as a teacher due to a historic youth reprimand for ABH (Actual Boldly Harm).

That’s fantastic news! Thank you so much for all of your help I am so grateful. I can finally concentrate on my career without having to worry about it.

ABH Actual Bodily Harm Cautions

As the reprimand was for ABH it meant that it would always be disclosed. For ABH cautions no matter how much time passes the caution will always be disclosed on both an enhanced or a standard DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate. NB: November 2020 edit: Youth cautions, warnings and reprimands are immediately  “protected” subsequent to changes implemented by the government. This means that even for offences that appear on the DBS list of unfilterable offences, they will not be automatically be disclosed on an enhanced and standard DBS check. It should be noted however despite the changes, it is still possible for facts related to youth cautions, warnings or reprimands to still be disclosed on an enhanced DBS certificate if the police feel the information is “relevant”.

Police Caution Removed

The client is now able to pursue a teaching career without the reprimand showing on a DBS certificate.

The case was particularly satisfying for us as a firm as the client had overcome numerous disadvantages to train as a teacher and removal of the reprimand meant that the past could finally be left in the past.
