Safer Recruitment Training 2018


Background and Wider Context

In March 2015, the DfE published updated multi-agency statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children and additional statutory guidance for schools and FE colleges ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (KCSiE).

Both guidance documents highlight the importance of safer recruitment in the safeguarding arrangements of all agencies that provide services for children and young people including schools and FE colleges.

Safer Recruitment training has been available for some years, both as an e-learning package and as a face to face course. That ‘approved’ training was originally badged by the National College of School Leadership (NCSL) and then the Children’s Workforce Development Council (CWDC).

In December 2013, following a series of meetings between the DfE and interested parties, the Safer Recruitment Consortium was created to update the face-to-face and online training materials and create a vehicle to ensure that good quality training continues to be available to schools, colleges and other services for children and young people

The new Safer Recruitment training programme was launched on 1st September 2014. Whilst based on the original programme, the updated material takes account of new information about the behaviour of sex offenders; strategies to safeguard young people from abuse in schools, colleges, early years and other settings; and the detail of pre-employment checks including DBS checks as set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education.

PLEASE NOTE; If you completed this course previously more than 3 years ago, we recommend that you refresh this training as there have been many recent changes. You must attend both consecutive dates for the full duration to comply with the agreement by the Safer Recruitment Consortium for the updated programme to be delivered by an accredited trainer
