Our trainers Tony Lampert and Helen Elliott are accredited facilitators for the Safer Recruitment Consortium which ensures you will be receiving the very best quality of training that is endorsed by the DfE and Ofsted and fully compliant with the requirements of Keeping Children Safe in Education (2018).

The course includes an assessment and is certificated.

What makes our training different is that it is delivered by two facilitators who bring together combined experience and expertise in both safeguarding and human resources. Our trainers’ professional background includes the provision of advice and consultation to schools in relation to both safeguarding and recruitment practice. Consequently they have an exceptional understanding of the Schools’ Inspection Framework and the safeguarding environment, and have experience of how schools/early years settings operate today, as well as in the HR context.

Helen and Tony are the lead providers of choice for a number of Local Authorities where the training is consistently evaluated as having an immensely positive impact in helping schools and early years settings to strengthen recruitment practice.

  • Excellent! Clearly presented. Excellent course materials with practical ideas and resources which may be adapted. We look forward to implementing the 6 week programme which is highly relevant to the students we work with. This has left me with skills which may be used tomorrow and a programme to develop and implement in the future. Diolch!
