Safer Recruitment Training Course

The six-module course covers why safer recruitment is important, what the legislation says about safer recruitment, its impact on the key steps in the recruitment process (including preparation, shortlisting and interviewing, and checking of the selected candidate), and the need for ongoing vigilance in this area.

This course has been developed in line with the Department for Education’s Keeping Children Safe in Education Guidance (2015), which outlines the legal duties you are obliged to follow to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people under the age of 18 in schools and colleges. This course specifically looks at how to safely recruit staff who are working with children and prevent unsuitable people from being appointed.

On completion of the course, you will automatically get a certificate,  containing your name, CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.


Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have a knowledge of:

  • The skills and understanding needed to implement safer recruitment processes
  • How to navigate the current recruiting practice in your organisation
  • How to promote a safer culture and recruiting process within your own organisation


  • Why is Safer Recruitment Important?
  • Key Legislation for Schools and Colleges

An excellent and very thorough course that provided in depth information and training guidance. There were lots of areas that were well explained and supported by links to further documentation which was extremely useful. I will return to the slides again as a point of reference over the coming months. Thank you!
