Safer Recruitment - Refresher

Duration: Half day event - Registration 08.50, Start:09.00, Finish: 13.00


Venue: Virtual course delivered via Zoom


If your organisation recruit staff and/or volunteers into the children and young people’s workforce staff should be trained in safer recruitment practices. The Independent Schools Inspectorate and Ofsted recommend that schools ensure that sufficient relevant staff are trained in safer recruitment processes.

We recognise that schools and education settings are becoming increasingly accountable for safeguarding children when recruiting and selecting staff.


This accredited training supports schools to effectively discharge their responsibilities for safer recruitment. It is designed for anyone who has attended an accredited Safer Recruitment course in the last three years and who now needs to update their knowledge and renew their certificate to ensure compliance with current guidance.


This course is ideal for:


Headteachers and Deputy Heads

Designated Safeguarding Leads

Pastoral Care Leaders

Senior Lead or Senior Management Team Members

Any member of staff taking part in an appointment panel

Any administrative staff who support appointment panels

Taking appropriate action includes preventing unsuitable people from working with children; promoting safe practice and challenging unsafe practice; identifying situations where there are grounds for concern about a child and ensuring that all those who are involved in providing services for children work in effective partnerships.


Course Outcomes: Participants will:


Explore how to meet current expectations in relation to the appointment of staff

Learn about how perpetrators operate and what this means for recruitment practice

  Testimonials from delegates who have attended this event:


  Clearer identification of the necessary safeguarding checks people working in schools need in order to keep our children safe

  Great strategies for deterring people for applying for a role in school who do not have the children's best interests at heart
  Anyone recruiting to posts working with children would learn something

  It was very comprehensive - the full day was helpful - and thoughtful

  It will help me contribute effectively, as a school governor, to discussions and decisions relating to safeguarding issues/policies. It will also enable me to participate usefully in recruitment panels at the school
  The course exceeded my expectations, and covered in depth all areas for consideration for safer recruitment and safeguarding children. There was plenty of scope for discussion, group work and questions, and a good balance of information and problem solving using scenarios/hypothetical situations
