Garda Vetting

What is Garda Vetting?

Garda vetting is the process of checking a person’s background to see if there are any issues which would make them unsuitable to work or volunteer in an environment with children and/or vulnerable adults.

The person being vetted (the applicant) gives written authorisation for An Garda Síochána to disclose to TU Dublin details of all prosecutions, successful or not, pending or completed, recorded in the State at the time of application.

Why is Garda Vetting Required?

Garda Vetting is required for students who go on work placement where such activity may bring them into contact with vulnerable adults or children.

Without satisfactory Garda clearance, students may be unable to complete the work placement module or other specific modules and consequently be unable to complete their course or receive an award.

When do I apply?

Once you have registered as a TU Dublin student you can apply for Garda Vetting.
