Schools and education settings share with others a duty to safeguard the children in their care.  Implementing safer recruitment practices is one way of discharging this safeguarding obligation.

This training is specially tailored for ITT and will provide delegates with the information and understanding they need to recruit safely and comply with relevant statutory guidance.  Delegates will gain the skills they need to ensure that safeguarding is at the heart of their recruitment decisions.

This training is suitable for those in the education sector who are involved in staff selection.

Please note that NASBTT is a licensed provider of the Safer Recruitment Consortium training. Full attendance and engagement are required to achieve certification.


  • Setting the context for safer recruitment
  • A safer recruitment process
  • Making the right decisions
  • An ongoing culture of vigilance

By the end of the training, delegates will have:

  • Identified key features of staff recruitment that help deter or prevent the appointment of unsuitable people;
  • Considered policies and practices that minimise opportunities for abuse or ensure its prompt reporting;
  • Begun to review their own organisation’s policies and practices with a view to making them safe.
