Webinar: Safer recruitment – lessons from an independent boarding school

17th June 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Safer recruitment is an important part of every organisation’s safeguarding commitment and works to ensure that all staff and volunteers involved with your organisation are appropriate to work with children, young people and vulnerable individuals.

This webinar will provide the contextual background to why safer recruitment processes are so important and present genuine learning potential from an organisation who have undergone a complete overhaul of their safer recruitment and safeguarding processes and culture.


Safer recruitment should be a continual process for any organisation that works with young people, so delegates from all organisations are welcome. The case study is from an independent boarding school so the content will be of particular relevance to those working in the education sector, or in a residential setting.

Training aims:

  • To make clear the importance of safer recruitment
  • To show, with real life examples, where the possible pitfalls and gaps are in the process of safer recruitment
  • To demonstrate when or where to increase scrutiny
  • To share recommendations to improve policies and procedures for safer working practices.


  • Member rate: £60
  • Non-member rate: £120*
