About the Course

Course Duration: 1hr 10m (approx) online training + self-directed learning and activities + final assessment.

Schools and colleges must maintain a single central record (SCR) of pre-appointment checks for all staff in line with statutory and regulatory requirements. Schools must ensure the SCR is up-to-date, complete and can evidence the suitability of staff and adults in order to support safeguarding needs and meet Ofsted expectations.

This essential CPD course will provide you with the core content you need to understand your statutory duties under the SCR, strengthen your understanding of administration and maintenance and develop best practice methods to ensure compliance.

Delivered by safeguarding and inclusion consultant and senior program leader, Lorna Ponambalum, the course has been split into seven bite-sized modules and has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.

  • Keeping Children Safe in Education
