About the course
This training will give education staff recruiters the information they need to recruit safely and comply with relevant statutory guidance. It is suitable for all in the education sector who are Involved in staff recruitment and selection.
Although current guidance states ‘at least one member of [the selection] panel [must have] completed safer recruitment training’, it is helpful to have more than one person, and to include others involved in the recruitment process, including administrative staff. The more knowledgeable the whole recruitment team become, the safer children are.
