This webinar explores the role of human resources in protecting children in our schools and promote model practice.

The role of the Human Resource Team is to ensure child protection is something that is not often discussed but is an essential part of ensuring students are safe and secure at school. Safer recruitment is at the heart of ensuring job candidates are vetted long before they set foot in a school and is at the core of the HR Teams’ work. With the rapid movement of teachers from school to school and country to country, tracing records and obtaining references is arduous but essential.

This webinar considers the following topics:

  • Considers the value of safer hiring
  • Discusses the role of HR teams in promoting safe schools
  • Reviews the challenges faced by HR teams in hiring new staff
  • Shares models of good practice that can foster safer schools
