Safer Recruitment

This workshop is the Safer Recruitment Consortium accredited, updated version of the Safer Recruitment training for Headteachers, school Governors and other staff who are likely to sit on interview panels or appoint staff. It is still a requirement for every school appointments panel to include at least one member who has completed the Safer Recruitment training. Course content provides clear explanations of government guidance regarding the safer recruitment process. It also includes an update of the most recent legislation changes (i.e. the Keeping Children Safe in Education – Sept 2019, DBS, Disqualification by Association and other pre-employment checks) that affect Safeguarding and Child Protection. It is recommended that you refresh your training every 5 years.
