What’s this webinar about?

Schools must ensure that they properly carry out, record and evidence a raft of pre-appointment checks as part of the recruitment process. A key part of this is maintaining the Single Central Register (SCR) and ensuring that it meets regulatory requirements. The SCR is the most common source of inspection failure but misinterpretation and misconception about what is required is just as common.

VWV provides specific training on the SCR and the pre-appointment checking process, which covers:

  • Pre-appointment checks – What checks are required for the various parts of your workforce?
  • Record keeping – What evidence do you need to retain of the checks you complete?
  • Knowing your SCR obligations – How should your SCR be presented and maintained? What should it include? What’s not required?
  • Inspection compliance – Understand your minimum requirements and gain the confidence to challenge misconceptions prior to and during inspection  

Who Should Attend?

Our training will benefit all staff who have a responsibility for carrying out and recording pre-appointment checks, and those who are involved in this aspect of the inspection process.
