How do you stop somebody dangerous person getting into your school?

People are prevented from working with children in schools on a weekly basis. Often these stories don’t make the headlines.

Dangerous people aren’t just those that commit sexual offences towards children. They could be anyone that is mentally or emotionally unstable. They are unfit to look after children or anyone that is vulnerable.

What keeps children safe in schools are managers and supervisors knowing what to look for and doing the right thing at the right time. That’s what Safer Recruitment training is for.

Some recruiters aren’t aware of the policy and practices that are available to help.

The Children Act 2004, Section 11 Regulations, The Care Act 2014 and the “Keeping Children Safe in Education” guidance (published in 2015 and updated in Sept 2019) for schools and colleges outline the expectations. These includes the requirement that all interviewing panels must have at least one member who has successfully completed some Safer Recruitment training.

What you'll learn...

Understand the Problem
You'll leave the training session with a greater awareness about how high the risk can be within your organisation. We'll share data around how many teachers are being prosecuted and for what sorts of things. And what we know about child sex offenders.

Discover the Key Features to Recruiting Safely
You'll discover how a school should set itself up in order to recruit safely. What activities you should be doing or thinking about before the candidates are even in your schools.

How to Handle the Interview
What can we be doing during the interview? We'll show you how you can improve your interview skills, ask the right questions and identify unsuitable candidates.

Develop an Ongoing Culture of Vigilance
How effective is your school on a day-to-day basis in handling difficult situations? We'll look at why people avoid tackling difficult situations. We'll look at what is bad management.
