  • New Graduates - Criminal Convictions History

    As part of the registration application process new graduates are required to provide a criminal convictions history. This document must be no older than three months old on the date that it is received by the Council.

    It has come to our attention that due of the high demand for criminal conviction history check services at the Ministry of Justice, it may take more than the standard 20 working days to receive.

    The Council is unable to register new graduates until this document (and all other required documentation) is received. Therefore the Council urge you to consider this wait time and apply for your criminal conviction history well in advance of the date of any employment after graduation.

    If you have any questions in regards to the new graduate registration process please email us on
