Lucy Faithfull Safer Recruitment in Education

Our next Lucy Faithfull Safer Recruitment session has now been announced for Tuesday 2nd November 2021. After a highly successful session in September, we'll be hosting this next session in the stunning Great Victoria Hotel in Bradford.


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.


Paula Dodd, HR Business Partner with PACT HR is an accredited trainer with Lucy Faithfull Foundation and delivers our one-day Safer Recruitment course. The course is suitable for all members of staff involved at any stage in the Safer Recruitment of staff, volunteers, contractors and freelance workers and covers:


  • Safer recruitment and the wider context of safeguarding
  • Prevalence of abuse and profile of abusers
  • How abusers operate within organisations
  • Features of a safer recruitment process
  • Planning a safer recruitment process
  • Making the right decisions: interview and selection
  • Setting acceptable standards of behaviour and maintaining an ongoing culture of vigilance
