Seeing potential: safe and fair recruitment workshop

Employing people with convictions in adult social care

This full-day workshop will help employers understand their rights and responsibilities when dealing with applicants or existing staff and volunteers who have criminal records (or have been subject to allegations). It will enable them to carry out effective risk assessments so that they can make informed decisions about the person’s suitability for the role.

It will provide delegates with the knowledge, confidence and practical tools to strike the balance between safeguarding their service users and addressing any barriers that may prevent the organization from accessing a vast potential talent pool of 11.7 million people with convictions.

Delegates will also receive a delegate pack which contains sample policies and resources based on the Safe and fair recruitment guide.

The workshop will help delegates to:

  • Understand and apply the relevant legislation that has an impact on recruitment including: The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (ROA), the ROA Exceptions Order 1975 (as amended 2013) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)/Data Protection Act 2018.
  • Determine what level of criminal record check is appropriate for different job roles, responsibilities and environments within adult social care.
  • Understand how to implement safer recruitment policies and practices.
  • Use the tools provided to develop effective risk assessment policies and procedures.
  • Learn how to interpret and manage criminal record disclosure information to inform the risk assessment process.
  • Learn how to gather other necessary information to carry out effective risk assessments on applicants, or existing staff and volunteers who have criminal records or have been subject to serious allegations.

This workshop is free to attend however places are limited.
