Safer Recruitment
Training for Schools

SBS provides expert guidance to ensure you are confident and compliant in your recruitment

Paragraph 43 of the DfE statutory safeguarding guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education, explains how governing bodies and proprietors of schools should prevent people who pose a risk from working with children. It notes that the school or college should have written policies and procedures for recruitment & selection in place.

The School Staffing Regulations require governing bodies of maintained schools to ensure that at least one person on any appointment panel has undertaken safer recruitment training.

The Safer Recruitment Training for Schools course has been specifically designed to help improve your recruitment processes to help deter, identify and reject applicants who might be unsuitable to work with children.

The course examines the required pre-employment checks for school staff and practical tools to apply throughout the process. Delegates will receive toolkit documents and checklists* to use in school to audit policies, procedures and documentation to ensure they are legally compliant and follow best practice principles.
