  • Safer Recruitment = keeping out unsuitable people
  • Limiting grade which means if you don’t score 4 in this you will get an unsatisfactory
  • In Safeguarding terms a vulnerable adult is very broad and providers may consider that it is easier to treat everyone as potentially vulnerable
  • Natspec & TechDis e-safety policy framework
    Ensure learners continue to benefit from technology for whatever purpose safely and with confidence
    To ensure that staff throughout the college have the confidence to provide the appropriate level of support to learners in the safe use of technology
    To enable the college to develop guidance and practice that reflects and is in-keeping with their ethos and that builds on the links into existing policies, such as IT and risk assessments
  • Residential setting requires a Different approach - More relaxed flexible access. Vigilant but relaxed?
    Range of particular vulnerabilities
    Ethos:
    Proactively develop a curriculum that teaches safe use rather than restrict access
  • Wider range but with parallels bullying and cyber-bullying should be regarded the same
  • The implementation of the Safeguarding Agenda rests on Local Safeguarding Boards and the (ISA).
    With whom registration will be compulsory.
    Key facts:
    Replaces POCA and POVA
    Additional to CRB check
    Pre-employment checks
    Independent decisions by ISA
    Continuous checking
    Workforce coverage
    Free to access - £64 to register
    26 July 2010 – 1st November
    Employers will probably want a CRB Enhanced check £36 to work with children but at their discretion
    for new workers on November 1st 2010 Now halted because of the intention to review it underThe Coalition: Programme for Government
  • Registration is required for anyone involved in Regulated or Controlled Activity.
    Specialist College is a Regulated Activity Provider
    Because it provides Teaching, training or instruction, care or supervision
    Advice and guidance on physical and emotional wellbeing
    Treatment or therapy
    Specified vehicle or working place
    It is also a Personnel Supplier – if there are work placements
  • Controlled Activity depends on level of contact:
    Frequent contact = once a week or more
    Intensive contact = 4 days a month or more or overnight
    Ancillary healthcare
    Adult social-care and education setting
    Access to health and social care records
  • It will be a criminal offence to allow a barred or (ISA) unregistered person to work in Regulated activity
    Fail to check their status for Regulated and Controlled activity
    Even though a barred person can do Controlled activity (i.e. caretaking)
    You must Risk Assess and stringently supervise a barred person in Controlled activity
    Six months in prison plus a fine
  • Safer Recruitment
    Defining activity and risk assessment
    Planning and Structuring Recruitment Process
    Stating Commitment and responsibilities
    Adverts
    Application forms
    Job, Role and Spec
    References
    Pro-formas for Job adverts, descriptions, forms

  • If a school gets a 4 in Safeguarding it is likely to get unsatisfactory

  • What do Ofsted want to see?
    Strong leadership – someone at the top onboard

    Staff Training – Recognising the indicators of abuse and the procedures to follow
    Checks and policies in place across provision – including all partners
    Robust risk assessment and rationale – defining roles and processes
    Clearly visible reporting process – Designated officer
    Working with Safeguarding boards – Evidence on engagement
  • Preventative and pre-employment
    Annually updated policy documents
    Online awareness training for all staff to level 1 - LSIS and CEOP
    Involving learners and built into the curriculum and course development process
    Comprehensive and effective resources – with assessment, outcomes, CPD rewards?
  • There are several good examples of learning materials
  • I wanted to look at a good practice example that Martin Cooke forwarded
    Online Safety &
    Safeguarding
    Examine values and attitudes
    Explore theories of risk
    Procedures
    Policies
    Your role
  • Safeguarding – Raising awareness
    Starting with an assessment of awareness adding Information, using activities to broaden insight and finally re-assessment in key areas:
    Types of abuse
    How to recognise the signs in order to be proactive
    Dispelling the myths in order to be supportive
    Process of Disclosure - Do’s and Don’ts
    Policy
  • It also includes a section on e-abuse
    Cyber bullying
    Grooming
    Pornography
    Informing staff suggesting that they agree rules with and advise learners. For example, Time restrictions and restricted sites
  • Understand Internet terms
    Understand the dangers
    Cyberbullying
    Grooming
    Pornography
    Phishing
    Gambling
    Hackers
    Social Networking
  • Both men and women abuse
    Boys and girls of any background can be abused – even people you know
    Anyone could be an abuser - even people you know
    Abuse is always the abusers responsibility – that’s what makes it ABUSE!
    Most abusers are known to the victim
  • Cyber-bullying – Discuss their attitudes and responses
    Advise them not to respond online – report! Keep evidence
    Grooming – secrecy and behaviour
    Pornography – Un/intentional
    Use Yahooligans, browser settings, report it
    Phishing – Never share passwords - Report emails
    Gambling – understand issues – addiction and profit
