Safer Recruitment Training

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. 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.

The Lucy Faithfull Foundation can offer one day courses which give school staff recruiters the information and knowledge to recruit safely.

Creating safer working environments

We can also provide advice and guidance on how to implement safer working practices, including reviewing child protection policies. Using our knowledge of abuse in the work place, we can help you create an environment that keeps children as safe as possible.
