It is crucial to create a culture of safer recruitment that includes the implementation of a recruitment procedure to help eliminate or identify people who might pose a safeguarding or welfare threat. Within the Children’s Act 2004 the expectation is that provisions fulfil their statutory safeguarding obligations to keep service users safe, of which Safer Recruitment is an integral part. Our courses are delivered by an accredited trainer from the Safer Recruitment Consortium, and the course is certified.
Areas which will be covered:
For more information on course content and outcomes please watch this video.
All managers and leaders, members of the safeguarding Team and anyone involved in recruitment, interviewing, induction or management of staff. Best practice is that 1 member of every interview panel has been Safer Recruitment trained.
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?
It is best practice 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.
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.
I only have a few members of staff that need to complete this training, what is the best option?

I will feel much more confident and secure in my knowledge of recruitment. Nicole was fantastic, engaging and incredibly knowledgeable!
Huge impact, I feel a lot more confident on how to recruit with safeguarding in mind. Amazing presentation and engagement. It’s my second course with Nicole and I knew it would be brilliant even before she started.
