The course is aimed at Head teachers, Governors, senior staff and managers responsible for the recruitment and employment of individuals who work in ‘Regulated Activity’ and/or come into contact with, work alongside children in schools and other childcare settings. It is also applicable to administrative staff who support the Recruitment and HR function within the organisation.
There are no pre-requisite qualifications required in order to attend and gain the certificate but as part of the ‘next steps’ element of the course, delegates may be advised to undertake a minimum of ‘Child Protection-Level 1’ training if it is appropriate to their job role or function and they have not already done so.
Method of Tuition
These are face-to-face, taught sessions offered as an alternative to the on-line training course and aimed at delegates who prefer to access and complete the course in a classroom environment.
The day is predominantly workshop-based, focussing on group work, the open sharing of experience and practice and the application of appropriate policy, procedure and process to working examples.
The training provides valuable background information, advice on how to develop and promote a safer school culture, best practice suggestions and practical advice to strengthen safeguards against employing unsuitable people.
