New eLearning course: Safer Recruitment

We have now released a Safer Recruitment course on Smartlog® which is completely free for all current Smartlog customers to assign and use.

What is Safer Recruitment?

According to both the School Staffing (England) Regulations 2009 and Education (Pupil Referral Units) (Application of Enactments) (England) Regulations 2007, at least one person who interviews an applicant for a role in a school or college must have completed Safer Recruitment training.
