Course fee: This course runs over five days and you will need to complete all to qualify. The cost of this course is £1,500 + VAT (per person) and will be delivered via Zoom video conferencing platform.

Note: The fee covers the marking/scoring and issue of certificates. The fee also includes registration to the Safer Recruitment Consortium in order to receive regular updates of materials, which enable trainers to keep abreast of the occasionally complex changes in the law. Failure to attend all 5 days and arriving late or leaving a session early, may result in us not issuing that participant the registration onto the Safer Recruitment database, which would prevent them from receiving the necessary updates.

The Safer Recruitment Consortium accreditation process requires that delegates are able to evidence experience in key areas before attending the TtT course. It is expected that a delegate would have either a background in Child Protection, HR or school governance with some training delivery experience, or be an established trainer with experience of at least one of these key areas.
