Safer Recruitment in Education

This course on safer recruitment looks at what you need to do to safeguard children and young people from unsuitable people who might apply to join your education setting.

Course description

When a vacancy arises in your organisation, you naturally want to ensure you employ the very best person for the post and this course will certainly help you to achieve this. However, the primary purpose of the course is to ensure that whilst making recruitment decisions, the children, young people and any adults at risk in your setting are safeguarded from harm.

This course is important for anyone that works in recruitment to embed safeguarding throughout every stage of the process.

This four module course delivers four CPD hours and comprehensively covers:

  • the four key stages of the recruitment process
  • pre-recruitment planning and what must be in place before you advertise your post
  • rejecting candidates and meeting the right ones
  • obtaining the correct checks and references, including what's required from a DBS check
  • post-recruitment activities, including observation and supervision.
