Gain the skills to protect children and young people through safer recruitment. Organisations and individuals who work with children and young people, or are involved in providing services for them, have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare. Having the right staff working in your setting is an essential element of your safeguarding duties.  If you recruit staff and/or volunteers into the children and young people’s workforce, you should be trained in safer recruitment practices.

In particular, schools and education settings are becoming increasingly accountable for safeguarding children when recruiting and selecting staff. For maintained schools, it has also been mandatory since January 1, 2010 for any staff appointments to be made by a recruitment panel with at least member trained in safer recruitment

This Children in Wales course is validated by the Safer Recruitment Consortium and uses their exclusive materials. The Safer Recruitment Consortium is DfE backed- the consortium members are the NSPCC, The Lucy Faithful Foundation, CAPE and NASS. The course is designed to help delegates identify the importance of safer recruitment of staff and volunteers. The course references all relevant research and legislative responsibilities and duties.
