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 can book your training as far in advance as you like! Some times of the year are especially busy (E.G inset days) 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.
