Verification of Higher Education
Education Checks are designed to validate a candidate’s education history. These checks
confirm things like the institute attended, dates of attendance, course information, and
the final qualifications gained. Education Checks confirm the final grades achieved by
the candidate, too.
The RECREF platform runs candidate information against an encrypted dataset from the UK
Higher Education institution’s records, and verifies a match. Education Checks are a
vital part of the recruitment referencing and employment screening process, and can
check higher education and Degree qualifications. They help protect your
company from having wrongly qualified people in roles which can, in certain
circumstances, have a huge impact if things go wrong based on lack of competence.
Our sophisticated system also allows us to verify overseas qualifications, please contact us for more
Please note: this service can take between 5 and 15 working days to verify qualifications.
