About this course...

How our training works...

Our specialist's view...

All amendments made to safeguarding legislation have a direct impact on recruitment procedures, which must be fully met by schools (maintained, free and independent) and academies. It is essential those with recruitment roles in policy or practice have a good understanding and the knowledge of how to effectively apply safer recruitment processes to meet these legislative requirements.

The Safer Recruitment training course is a key element of our safeguarding suite and is designed to ensure schools and academies have a clear understanding of the vetting remit and how to fulfil statutory requirements.

As with all elements of our safeguarding suite, the course content has been robustly developed with specialist safeguarding expertise. Our accredited CPD solution will ensure safer recruitment procedures and practice are secure and a culture of vigilance developed.
