Safer Recruitment Training in Education is run by our MD and accredited trainer, Katy. Normally run as a face to face course, a virtual course has been released from the Safer Recruitment Consortium which divides the day in to 4 separate modules completed by live webinar.
The course provides recruiting staff members or volunteers, in any educational sector, including primary, secondary and SEN schools, with the skills they need to find suitable applicants (teachers, teaching assistants, non-teachng staff, etc.) to work with children or vulnerable adults.
An essential course for anyone involved in the recruitment of school staff members including those who work voluntarily. Past attendees have included Business Managers, HR Managers and Directors, Headteachers, Executuve Principals, Deputy Headteachers and Office Managers - as well as the team at Smile Education.
As referenced in Keeping Children Safe in Education, it is required by law that one person on the school's interview panel must be safer recruitment trained.
Our Safer Recruitment Training will cover the following topics:
The session is highly interactive and engaging with activies and real-life examples and case studies throughout including that of Ian Huntley.
This course will enable your school to adopt procedures which will help to deter, reject or identify people who may be a danger to children. Thus creating a culture of ongoing vigilance. Without proper training, you risk employing someone who is unsuitable and unintentionally put children at risk. Sadly these individuals can be highly devious therefore training is essential.
This course will give you the confidence to recruit without worry by offering practical ways you can improve your processes, procedures and mindset. The training which lasts for a day, takes you through the entire school recruitment process, from the initial consideration to the interviewing stage and the eventual hiring.

Courses will be run routinely throughout the year and are currently being hosted virtually due to COVID-19. On request we can also run private sessions which are ideal for training your whole school's senior leadership or recruitment team.
