NOTE 1: Some cautions, reprimands, warnings and convictions are protected under the DBS filtering process and you do not have to disclose them.

The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 [exceptions] Order 1975 [2013 and 2020] provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities certain convictions and cautions are considered "protected." This means that they do not need to be disclosed to an employer and, if they are disclosed, an employer cannot take them into account. Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found here 

NOTE 2: if you are under 18 it is no longer a legal requirement for you to disclose any cautions you hold.
