Safer Recruitment for Schools (£30 per place)

As a result of the Bichard enquiry into the Soham tragedy of 2002, the DCSF has made it mandatory that at least one member of every interview panel recruiting school based staff should have received appropriate training.

The course includes an assessment which is taken away at the end of the day for marking. Certificates, which are graded and then distributed to all delegates, it is therefore essential that attendance is for the whole day.

Target group: This course is essential for managers and practitioners who are involved in the recruitment and selection processes for staff and volunteers who will be working with, or providing services for children, young people, and can also be useful for staff who supervise and/or manage staff, as well as those with a designated/lead role for safeguarding and child protection business.

Aim: Provide crucial information, strategies to assist with the development of a safer working culture, and strengthen safeguards against employing unsuitable people to work with children, young people, families and vulnerable adults.
