The Safer Recruitment and People Management course is available on the Church of England training portal.

Safer recruitment is a set of practices to help make sure your staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children and young people.

The aim of this course is to equip participants with an understanding of safer recruitment, and the skills necessary to promote positive safeguarding behaviour, and detect safeguarding risk, once a person is in role.
It should be completed by:

  • Anyone involved in the recruitment of church officers, employees, elected members and volunteers
  • Those with responsibility for administering DBS
  • Safeguarding Officers

The course is online and takes around 90 minutes to two hours to complete.
