Safer Recruitment


Cost of training session for non-subscribing schools is £375.00 per delegate
Cost of training session for subscribing schools is £275.00 per delegate


A major responsibility of the governing board is to ensure the safety and well-being of children and young people in school. To support this and in line with ‘Staffing Regulations, 2009’, every interview panel for staff in school must include someone who has been trained in safer recruitment.
Governance and Leadership Service has been accredited by the Safer Recruitment Consortium to deliver this training and this full day’s course provides governors with the skills and information they need to fulfil this role.
In addition to recruitment, the course also looks at how to ensure a safer culture in school and covers issues outlined in the Statutory Guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education, 2016’.
The course includes an assessment which results in successful governors being accredited to fulfil this important role. The certificate awarded on successful completion of this training is valid for five years.


By the end of the session governors will:
  • Have a greater understanding of offender behaviour
  • Identify the key features of staff recruitment that help deter or prevent the appointment of unsuitable people
  • Consider policies and practices that minimise opportunities for abuse or ensure its prompt reporting
  • Know how to review their own and their organisation’s policies and practices with a view to making them safer
