Event Description
This Safer Recruitment webinar is for managers in Early Help or Children’s Social and Residential Care who are responsible for recruiting staff who work with children and young people, or who are involved in providing services for them.

It seeks to assist you in raising your awareness and improving your practice throughout the recruitment selection and interview process of new staff in order that you maximise the opportunity for hiring suitable candidates within the wider context of safeguarding.

Training Objectives
The aim of this course is to give you the skills necessary to make the right decisions at selection and interview regarding:
  • Safer recruitment and the wider context of safeguarding
  • Prevalence of abuse and profile of abusers
  • How abusers operate within organisations
  • Features of a safer recruitment process
  • Planning a safer recruitment process
  • Making the right decisions; selection and interview
  • Setting acceptable standards of behaviour
  • Maintaining an on-going culture of vigilance
Learning Outcomes
If you apply what you have learnt on this course you will be able to:
  • Identify the key features of staff recruitment that deter and prevent the appointment of unsuitable people
  • Consider policies and practice that minimise opportunities for abuse or ensure its prompt reporting
  • Review WSCC policies
Benefits of Attending
As an organisation that works with children and young people, or are involved in providing services for them, we have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare.

If you recruit staff and/or volunteers to work with children or young people this mandatory training will help increase your skills and confidence to ensure you recruit the right people safely and thereby help protect children and young people from harm.

You will gain the skills you need to ensure that safeguarding is at the heart of your recruitment decisions.
