Recruit safely with our training for anyone working in education or recruiting for roles in the education sector

Are you responsible for making sure you’re recruiting the right people to work with children and young people in your school, academy or college?

Developed by specialist child protection and human resource safeguarding experts, the NSPCC's online and face-to-face courses will teach you how to protect children and young people through a safer recruitment process.

Looking for our non-education courses?

We also provide safer recruitment training for organisations and sports and leisure settings. 

What will I learn?

The online and face-to-face courses cover:

  • preparing to recruit
  • shortlisting for interview
  • vetting and barring checks
  • dealing with concerns identified through vetting and barring checks and assessing risk
  • managing allegations of inappropriate behaviour or abuse by a member of staff or volunteer.

Our online and face-to-face courses have been developed in line with current legislation in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and will teach you what you need to do to comply with statutory guidance.
