The effective recruitment and selection of staff is essential to safeguard children. Recruitment, selection and pre-employment checks undertaken as part of this process, are an organisations first chance to make efforts to prevent unsuitable individuals from gaining employment working with children.
In order to guide you through what is needed for safer recruitment practice the CWDC have put together some resources. These are available to order from their website.
Here you can also access the CWDC on-line safer recruitment training, which we recommend that manager/owners undertake as a minimum level of training in safer recruitment.
