NSPCC Safer Interviewing Skills Course
November 1, 2017£145
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is delivering a Safer Interviewing Skills course on Wednesday 1st November, aimed at those responsible for recruiting staff and volunteers working with children and young people.
Based on the principles of NSPCC values-based interviewing; attendees will be taught to assess aspects of a candidate’s character (which is essential in order to work effectively within child-focused organisations), such as values, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours.
The course works to a set of four behaviours that are core to safe working practice with children and young people:
- Establishing and Maintaining Professional Boundaries and Professional Integrity
- Establishing and Maintaining Relationships with Children
- Taking action to protect a child
- Demonstrating resilience and ability to cope with pressure
The course aims to demonstrate how to explore “gut feeling” and remain fair and non-discriminatory when asking probing questions.
The course will take place at the NSPCC offices in Templeton Business Centre, 62 Templeton Street, Glasgow, G40 1DA; places are £145 each.
To book your place, or for further information, please visit the course’s dedicated page on the NSPCCwebsite.
