Yes I was convicted in December and im on probation and no I wasn’t in that role at the time so hopefully I will be ok?! I believe it wlll be regulated activity. Thanks for replying so quickly.

The way it would work is for some offences, they won't consider barring you until you apply for a job involving regulated activity. In this case, as your offence isn't a relevant offence, that ought to be the end of it, unless someone refers you to the DBS, but that would have to be someone related to regulated activity, not a nosey neighbour. Unlock have information about it here.

=========================================================

As Chris Stacey said: Although its not formally part of the sentence that is handed down in court, the criminal record that someone comes away with effectively becomes a second sentence, which can have a long-lasting, if not lifelong, impact.

I was charged with common Assault x 2 (by beating) and what I would like to know is will I be on the barring list? I have applied for a job to help ex offenders but if I appear on this list I won’t be able to take the position as will be working with vulnerable people. Thank you so much

First of all, if you are convicted, and maybe even if you aren't, the DBS might consider barring you, although common assault is not a "relevant offence", so unless it's for something that happened while you were working with vulnerable groups, barring won't be an option. They would offer you the chance to make representations, and Unlock can offer you information and advice about that. The second point is that ex-offenders aren't necessarily vulnerable people in the strict sense of DBS barring. Unless your job is limited to regulated activity with vulnerable groups, then barring would not be an issue.
