Course Objectives

Schools which have bought into the Service Level Agreement will receive this course for free as part of their package but will be charged £25 for non-attendance. Schools which have not bought in to the SLA will be charged the full course fee.

This course complies with the Department for Education (DfE) training requirements that in maintained schools it is a legal requirement for recruitment panels to have at least one person drawn from the school staff or Governing Body who has been trained in safer recruitment. It is NOT a requirement that ALL Governors are trained in safer recruitment.

Following the recommendations of the Bichard Report, this course fulfils the requirement to address safer recruitment in schools.

It covers:

• Understanding the principles of abuse.
• Safer recruitment processes and making the right decisions.
• Building a culture of vigilance in your school

This course is for Governors only. Schools buying into the SLA for training can attend this course for free. Non Governors will be charged the full course fee.

Cancellation fees will apply for non-attendance or if a course place is cancelled by the delegate within 21 working days of the course date.

If you have applied online and ticked to have acceptance sent via email the email will be sent 2-3 weeks before as well as a letter to the your Schools Portal.

ONLY the Lead Governor for Safeguarding and Child Protection should attend this Course. It is NOT a requirement that ALL Governors are trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection. Lead Governors for Child Protection and Safeguarding MUST read Part One of the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 Document before they attend the training session.
