Course Outline:

It is crucial to ensure that early years providers are creating a culture of safety that includes the implementation of a recruitment procedure to help eliminate or identify people who might pose a safeguarding or welfare threat. With the launch of the new common inspection framework and its accompanying handbook, 'Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years', Ofsted must evaluate how well early years settings are fulfilling their statutory safeguarding obligations and keeping children safe.

Our courses are delivered by an accredited trainer from the Safer Recruitment Consortium, which is certificated and covers:

  • 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: interview and selection
  • Setting acceptable standards of behaviour
  • Maintaining an ongoing culture of vigilance

ECP provides this specialist supervision by NSPCC-trained staff with over 20 years’ experience in the field of child protection.
