About the course
This masterclass has been designed in line with the Department of Education’s 'Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016' and will give recruiters the information they need to recruit safely and comply with relevant statutory guidance.
Safe recruitment and selection processes are essential if settings, organisations and institutions are to attract the best staff and deter and reject those who may pose a risk to children or who are unsuitable to work with them. This masterclass provides opportunities to discuss the importance of safer recruitment in the wider context of safeguarding and promotes safer recruitment practice.
Keeping children safe in education (2016) lays out the responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead. This masterclass will provide designated safeguarding leads with clarity about what the task involves and support in implementing systems that safeguard children.
Safeguarding children must be a fundamental part of your recruitment processes, which regulators (Ofsted) will scrutinise during future inspections. An essential course to compliment recruiters who have completed the e-learning recruitment training. Delegates will receive the information they require to safely comply with relevant statutory safer recruitment guidance. It is suitable for all who are involved in staff selection, recruitment and induction.
Participants will have opportunities to examine how to continually assess the ‘suitability’ of staff, volunteers and students and how to challenge and improve poor, unsafe recruitment processes. All of those involved in working with children should have access to advice and support from peers, managers, or named and designated professionals (Working Together to safeguard children 2015). This course will help you and your front line managers to create and sustain an effective supportive supervisory framework.
