Safer Recruitment Training Course

A thorough, detailed and fully up to date Safer Recruitment training course essential for all those involved with recruitment of personnel to work or volunteer directly with children, young people, adults at risk, their families and carers. The course can be completed in about two hours.

Whether you are recruiting for the first time, or want to update your recruitment procedure, this course will take you through the entire process, in detail.

Compliant with the latest legislation (including post Brexit changes), government guidance and with direct links to local Safeguarding Partnerships, Boards and Protection Committees across the UK, this course covers the entire safer recruitment process from identifying the need to recruit through to appointment and subsequent induction, training and supervision.

At the end of the course useful recruitment resources, including a template Single central record (SCR), can be downloaded along with a personalised and dated certificate, valid for two years.

After completion, candidates have open access to the whole course and all downloads, allowing it to be used as a reference document.
