Recruitment Best Practice in Schools - 5 March 2020
The Department for Education (DfE) ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ requires all schools to have a clear recruitment and selection policy and procedure in place, but looking beyond statutory requirements recruitment and selection is undoubtedly critical for the success of any school. The ability to select, motivate and retain the very best people is a hallmark of high-performing schools.
Our experience tells us that poorly handled recruitment and selection processes can be costly and time consuming (it will cost a school about three times a person’s salary to hire the wrong person!!!). It is therefore vitally important to plan recruitment and selection carefully, allow sufficient time at each stage and embed recruitment and selection into wider leadership and management strategies to ensure that your school retains the very best people.
During this practical half day course we will be:
• demonstrating how school leaders can embed best practice recruitment and selection across the organisation;
• discussing and providing practical examples of each stage of the recruitment and selection cycle from preparing an application pack and advertising right through to appointment, induction and retention;
• providing school leaders with the skills, knowledge and confidence to put in place recruitment strategies that are proven to be more accurate at predicting a person’s potential to succeed.
Who is it for?
