Why conduct an education check?

Education checks are important for organisations looking to verify the credentials and qualifications of future candidates. This is particularly crucial for positions that require specific education or training, such as those in the healthcare, education, or finance industries. By verifying the institutions a candidate has attended, as well as any degrees or certifications they claim to have earned, you can ensure you're hiring individuals who have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their job effectively. Make informed hiring decisions, ensure you have a qualified workforce and avoid hiring candidates who may falsified their credentials.
