As you will know from 1 January 2010 it became mandatory that any appointments of school staff should be made by a recruitment panel that includes at least one person who has been trained in Safer Recruitment. This course is based on the updated version of the national accredited training that has been developed by the Safer Recruitment Consortium which has taken over responsibility for the design of the training.

The course is fully compliant with the national guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2015 and includes an assessment that is a requirement for all school based participants.

The Safer Recruitment training will enable schools to fulfill their responsibility to have in place safe recruitment and selection practice within the wider context of safeguarding children and to make safeguarding children central to all we do.

This course is also open to childcare providers. Whilst it is not statutory for childcare providers to follow the Government’s safer recruitment requirements, following these procedures would be good practice and will ensure compliance with the EYFS statutory requirements regarding recruitment and employment law.
