Safer Recruitment / Recruitment Training

Aura HR will provide the necessary accredited, Ofsted-recognised, training to ensure Managers have the skills to minimise the risk of employing unsuitable staff into their learning establishments and having access to children in their care.

This training will enable the participants to gain an understanding and awareness of offender behaviour, identify key features of a staff recruitment procedure which helps deter and prevent the appointment of unsuitable people, helping in reviewing current policies and practices in their organisations with a view to creating a safer, transparent culture of working.

If your organisation works with children and young people, or are involved in providing services for them, you have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare.

If you are responsible for recruiting staff and/or volunteers this one-day course gives recruiters the essential information and understanding they need to recruit safely and thereby help protect children from harm.
