Recruitment & Selection Process
Recruitment and selection process
We aim to create a culture that safeguards and promotes the welfare of all children. As part of this culture, we will adopt robust recruitment procedures that help to deter and prevent people who are unsuitable to work with children from applying for or securing employment, or volunteering opportunities in our setting.
We will ensure that all those involved with the recruitment and employment of staff to work with children have received appropriate safer recruitment training. At least one person on each interview panel have completed safer recruitment training. These persons will complete the TWSP recommended Safer Recruitment Consortium training.
The following persons have completed safer recruitment training in our setting:
Pre-appointment vetting checks, regulated activity and recording information
We will abide by the legal requirements when appointing individuals to engage in regulated activity relating to children. We understand the importance of ensuring the correct pre-appointment checks are carried out. These checks will help us to identify whether a person may be unsuitable to work with children (and in some cases is legally prohibited from working with children and/or working as a teacher). We see this as part of our wider safeguarding regime which will carry on following appointment.
Other checks that may be necessary for staff, volunteers and others
We will carry out the checks that are necessary for individuals who have lived or worked outside the UK; agency and third-party staff; contractors; trainee teachers; volunteers; governors and proprietors. We will fulfil our responsibilities in relation to other settings, including alternative provision, work experience and host families.
