• Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS)

    Operating music lessons for Schools in Sussex County means we work within three separate Local Education Authorities (LEAs): Brighton & Hove, West Sussex and East Sussex. Our tutors hold enhanced disclosure DBS certification that is valid for all three LEAs.

  • Public Liability Insurance (PLI)

    Working in public means we must be insured. Each of our teachers carry their own PLI with a minimum £10 Million cover. For many of our team, this comes as part of their Musicians Union (MU) membership.

  • Child Protection Policy

    Guitar Clubs has its own Child Protection Policy. It also abides by the policies of the Schools in which it operates. Our tutors understand their duty of care to the children they teach. This includes an awareness of the signs of child abuse and emotional trauma, and how to report any such occurrences in a professional and responsible manner.

    Our Policy also encompasses the safe operation of lessons from registration and the teaching environment, to evacuation procedures, first aid support, the summoning of emergency assistance, and the secure visual and verbal return of children to their parent, carer or school staff at the end of each lesson.

  • Duty of Care

    While teaching, the Guitar Clubs tutors are aware of their duty of care to students in their charge.
