Safer recruitment practices are in place to ensure the people we place with you are suitable to work with children and young people. Safer recruitment is an ongoing process of improvement for every organisation whose work or services involve contact with children.
The safe recruitment of staff into schools is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children in education. Here at Clarus Education, we adhere to all Department of Education policies.

We are a member of The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), which was formed to give all those involved in the recruitment of professional talent that has a commitment to excellence, the specialist support they need to be successful.
APSCo helps us provide candidates and school employers a trusted badge of quality whilst supporting them in achieving their educational hiring needs.
