Our new Safer Recruitment training sessions have been announced.

They will be offered over a full day session. Our Safer Recruitment sessions are highly acclaimed, and always sell out fast, so be sure to book your place on one of the dates as soon as possible. These sessions will be hosted in differing locations so please check the details for each individual course, we look forward to seeing you there.

Following the removal of DfE approved safer recruitment training in 2013, professionals from a range of backgrounds were brought together to update the training and ensure its continuing relevance and availability. From this group, a Safer Recruitment Consortium was formed; made up of NSPCC, Lucy Faithfull Foundation, NASS and CAPE.
