Welcome to Governance LIVE! virtual induction

Session impact

The educational welfare of pupils is something that all governance revolves around, and the role of recruiting is no different.

It’s your responsibility as a board member to understand safer recruitment and apply this not only to recruiting senior leaders but throughout the school’s whole resourcing process.

We have designed this session to ensure you have all the knowledge and skills you need to achieve this. 

The purpose of the session

All recruitment panels in schools are required to have on them someone who is trained in safer recruitment practices.  Although governors and trustees will only be involved in the recruitment of senior leaders, they should ensure that enough board members are trained for this eventuality, and are aware of the parameters in which their own senior leaders are working.

At the end of this session, you will understand how to comply with safer recruitment practice, and how to implement it effectively.

What will the session cover?

1. Why safer recruitment is required

2. What the statutory requirements are

3. The actions required to ensure safer recruitment at all stages of the recruitment process

4. The governors’ role in relation to safer recruitment

 Who should attend?

Governors, trustees and academy committee (LGB) members

The senior leadership team is expected to attend

This session is for suitable for a number of schools to share

All NGA sessions are interactive and provide information, activities and opportunities for discussion
