The Course

Safer recruitment training became mandatory for the recruitment of school staff from 1 January 2010. This means a recruitment panel must have at least one member who has completed the training, or where an individual is in charge of recruitment, that individual must have completed the training. It is the responsibility of schools to comply. It is recommended that anyone recruiting into the wider children’s workforce be trained.

This training is for Headteachers, Senior Leaders, Governors, Business Managers, HR professionals and for those who recruit workers and volunteers to work with children and young people. As a minimum at least one member of the interview panel should have had Safer Recruitment Training. All organisations in England that work with or provide services for children and families have a duty to protect their welfare.

The one-day course is divided into four modules:

  • Introduction to safer recruitment, abuse and abusers in the workforce

  • A safer recruitment process

  • Safer selection

  • An ongoing safeguarding culture and responding to concerns and allegations
