It is crucial to ensure that providers are creating a culture of safe recruitment to include the implementation of a recruitment procedure to help to 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 Education and Skills Settings (2021), Ofsted must evaluate how well providers are fulfilling their statutory safeguarding obligations in keeping learners safe.

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.
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.
Do I need to this training for my role in an Education Setting?
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.
Will I receive a Certificate?
You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. Safer Recruitment Training with ECP is CPD certified for you and your School’s single central training record. 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 (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. 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.
How many people can attend the training?
Our face-to-face training numbers vary from course to course, and also take into consideration the size of the space we will be delivering the training in. The size of groups can vary from as small as 2 delegates to large groups of 20+.
Our virtual delivery of Safer Recruitment training has no minimum number of attendees, maximum number of attendees is 25.

Nicole was very knowledgeable and has helped to increase my confidence in this area. -
Sporting Futures Delegate
Nicole was excellent. Very clear and pitched at a good pace, very well explained. This is really useful training as we have an external HR consultant who deal with much of this process so I am starting to feel more confident in being able to scrutinise these processes. Really enjoyed this session and the information and insight Nicole was able to pass on has been invaluable. I would highly recommend this to others.
