This CPD-certified, level-2 e-learning course is suitable for anyone who works with children, young people, or adults at risk in their work or voluntary activities, and provides learners with a thorough understanding of what safer recruitment is, why it is so important, and guidance for every step along the recruitment process – as well as what needs to be done once the appointment has been made.

The course includes optional voiceover recorded by a professional actor and includes downloadable resources, culminates with an assessment and provides certification upon completion to evidence the learning provided. It is specifically designed to help learners have an in-depth understanding of why safer recruitment must be implemented in every organisation that has a responsibility for safeguarding, and what else can be done as part of a wider outlook to deter unsuitable candidates and behaviours.
