Recruitment can be a minefield in any sector but for schools, operating within a robust legislative framework and with safeguarding an overarching obligation, the risks of getting it wrong can be significant.

Schofield Sweeney and ourselves are hosting a joint safer recruitment webinar for schools and academies.

We will be covering the following:

How the changes in DBS filtering rules effects safer recruitment in education to include:

  • self-disclosure declarations
  • the main wording changes for the application form
  • your responsibilities in signposting potential employees to filtering guidance
  • juvenile automatic filtering
  • retaining copies of DBS certificates

Best practice for the single central record to include:

  • mandatory & best practice recording
  • EEA sanctions (from 1/1/2021)
  • what training is available for managing SCR

References and requesting/providing details with regards final warnings and reprimands, and disclosing sickness absence

Health questionnaires

The recruitment process: must we advertise all posts externally?

Top tips for avoiding discrimination

Our webinar is perfect for HR leads, departmental heads and those who manage staff in schools and academies.

This event is not open to freelance HR professionals or recruitment agencies.
