TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONALS | EARLY YEARS

Safer Recruitment

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.

For more information on course content and outcomes please watch this video. 


Target Audience

Senior Leadership Teams / those involved in the recruitment process in early years.


FAQs

What level training is this course?

Since the implementation of Safeguarding Partnerships, most sectors have moved away from using the term ‘levels’. The expectation is that you will undertake training which is relevant to the role you take in the organisation.

This course is certified by the Safer Recruitment Consortium.


Do I need this training for my role?

This training is a statutory requirement for a minimum of one member of your recruitment panel to complete. There is no renewal requirement for this training qualification, however best practice is that it is renewed every 2 years.


What is the difference between face-to-face and live virtual training options?

As far as possible, our Safer Recruitment training is as close to being the same regardless of delivery method as they can be! All the required content is covered to the highest standard, and we aim to keep as much interaction and engagement in all of our sessions as we do in our face-to-face training.

Face-to-face is our preferred method of training, but we know this is not always possible so have made our live virtual courses available so you don’t have to miss out on being able to access our courses.


I only have a few members of staff that need to complete this training, what is the best option?

ECP run this course for individuals on our training platform as a live virtual training. You can find the details for this on our courses for individuals page of our website.

For these courses the price is per person and you can book multiple spaces for your staff.


Will I receive a certificate?

You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. Safer Recruitment Training with ECP is certified by the Safer Recruitment Consortium. You need to ensure you are available and engaged for the full duration of the training session in order to receive your certificate.


How far in advance can I book the training?

You can book your training as far in advance as you like! Some times of the year are especially busy so we advise you book up to a year or more in advance, especially if there is a specific date and time you would like to secure. If you know your training will be up for renewal the sooner you get the training date confirmed the more likely ECP will have availability to deliver your training.
