Safer Recruitment Training is essential for any school which has to hire and fire staff whether they be educational or support. The training allows you or other members of your team to identify behaviour which might be considered inappropriate in a more timely fashion.
Creating a culture of safe recruitment is important and by undertaking Safer Recruitment Training, your school can adopt procedures which will help to deter, reject or identify people who may be a danger to children. Without proper training, your school may run the risk of employing someone who is unsuitable and unintentionally put children at risk.
Our course takes a practical approach to address the concerns that you may face while recruiting, giving you the confidence to recruit without worry. The training which lasts for a day, takes you through the entire recruitment process, from the initial consideration to the interviewing stage and the eventual hiring.
Be able to identify the key features of recruitment that help deter or prevent the appointment of unsuitable people.
Have a clear understanding of how to promote a safer culture and recruiting process within your own organisation.
Have the skills and understanding to implement the safer recruitment process.
Be able to confidently assess and recruit suitable candidates.
