Course description

Safer Recruitment and selection practice is part of the wider duty of organisations to promote the safety and welfare of children by ensuring that the
relevant safeguarding checks are carried out on staff and volunteers working or having contact with children to help prevent the appointment of unsuitable people.

This course is based on the accredited national training, initially developed for schools but relevant for all organisations working with children. The course has been updated to reflect recent changes in pre employment checks and is fully compliant with current Government Guidance including Working Together 2017 and Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018. The course includes an optional assessment and is certificated.

You need to attend Part 1 and Part 2.
