    I'm 18 now but in August or September 2014 or 2015, I think I was 16 -17years, I lost my job for a huge and stupid mistake for the theft of an item (first time I've ever done something so bad). So I want to know, will it show up on a national police check if the job required it?

    I didn't get convicted. I just had to sit in a room where they video recorded me confessing what I had done, then went and spoke to an officer a couple days later instead of going to children's court.

    Were you actually convicted of an offence? Or just given a warning?

    If you were convicted, even though you were a child it will still show on your national police check for 5 years after the date of conviction. After that it will become spent and will not appear on the standard police check.
