Safer Recruitment for Non-School Organisations

We are asking those working or Volunteering in non-school organisations to let us know if they would be interested in attending this this training, details of course content below. please indicate in the access section of the form if you would prefer an evening or Saturday course.


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. It is also viewed that best practice would deem this training necessary across the wider children’s workforce and Vulnerable Adults.

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.
