Local Safeguarding Boards have a responsibility to ensure that agencies named under Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 have safer recruitment practices in place. This module will assist those
involved in recruitment, ensuring they meet these requirements.
The module considers statistics relating to safer recruitment; statistics are important as they simplify the size of the problem. It also considers the background to the introduction of the more
robust safer recruitment processes, which followed the Bichard Inquiry, and looked at the recruitment of Ian Huntley in the Soham case.
On completion of this module learners will have covered these learning objectives:
Develop the skills and understanding needed to put in place safer recruitment processes
Check current practice in your organisation
Provide understanding of the Independent Safeguarding Authority and the Vetting and Barring Scheme
Promote a safer culture within your organisation
Raise your awareness about abuse and abusers
