Training available for CRB countersignatories

Following the publication of data showing that 8.9% of CRB forms are returned due to errors, the Home Office Customer Training team has been busy putting together a course for countersignatories to ensure that they are better informed and have all the necessary knowledge needed to complete their role effectively and efficiently.

After the completion of just one course, the return rate was reduced from that 8.9% to 3.7% in a single month.  The course is now to be rolled out across the UK during May, June and July.
