A report by Academies Week give details of a teacher being banned from the classroom after he lied about his GCSE grades and past experience when he applied for an internal promotion.

Matthew Brown, the former head of ICT at the independent girls’ Notre Dame School in Cobham, Surrey, was found to have lied on his CV when he applied to become head of year at the school.

He inflated his GCSEs of 1997/98 by a total of 18 grades, claimed that he had GCSEs in two subjects that he did not and added a further GCSE.

Latest figures from the fraud prevention service CIFAS show that 324 people were prosecuted in 2013 for fraudulent job applications, including submitting false paperwork and withholding information, an increase from 205 in 2012.
