Schools and educational settings have a duty to safeguard the children in their care. Implementing safer recruitment practices is an important aspect of fulfilling this obligation. This one day workshop considers all aspects of safeguarding through recruitment and gives school staff recruiters the information and understanding they need to recruit safely and comply with relevant statutory guidance.

By the end of the training, delegates will be able to:

  • Identify key features of staff recruitment that help prevent or deter the appointment of unsuitable people
  • Consider policies and practices that minimise opportunities for abuse or ensure it’s prompt reporting
  • Begin to review their own organisation's policies and practices with a view to making them safe
  • Maintain an on-going culture of vigilance and action planning

The programme includes full participation and group discussions. An assessment is included at the end of each session, so participants must be prepared to complete the whole day.

Participants will receive a record of attendance and a certificate confirming their performance during assessment.

The course is facilitated by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation and accredited by the Safer Recruitment Consortium.
