Do you trust a certificate’s authenticity without checking?
The amount of qualification fraud across the UK labour market is huge. Diploma mills and forgery are rife, particularly within professional sectors (with fake degree certificates costing as little as £50), education checks are even more critical to an effective screening process than most realise.
Training, school, university, and professional training certificates can all be forged, meaning that there is a real risk of you employing someone with a fake certificate into your organisation.
The Better Hiring Institute are working to deliver auto-verification of qualifications which would give organisations access to every qualification in the UK and enable them to check the validity of these documents.
