From Policy to Practice; the development of a shared safeguarding record to support safe, secure, and sustainable teacher recruitment.
International and independent schools can face teacher turnover rates of 15-30%/year. The disruption caused by this turnover leads to significant financial, safeguarding, and accreditory risks for schools.
In partnership with the Global Safeguarding Collaborative and guided by the recommended recruitment and screening practices of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we are developing a second version of a shared, secure, safeguarding records solution.
The development of such a solution would;
- Significantly reduce the administrative costs associated with recruitment
- Make recommended safeguarding practices more accessible to schools
- Simplify the transfer of teacher records and observations between independent schools
- Connect policy to practice through a supportive technological solution
- Help schools meet accreditation standards associated with recruitment and safeguarding
