About this event

This session is designed as a taster to NSPCC’s Safer Interviewing course, and aimed at individuals who have responsibility for interviewing candidates for posts that interact with children and young people

You will learn how to ask clear and relevant questions in structured interviews, with a distinct focus on personality, behaviour and attitudes.

Key learning:

  • Understand how interview questions focusing on attitudes and behaviours can protect children
  • Practise interviewing candidates in a style that promotes the welfare and protection of children and young people
  • Consider how these techniques can be implemented within your organisation.
