This 2-hour online training course is designed to assist employers in developing safe, fair, and consistent recruitment practices and better understand what having a conviction means when it comes to employment. It will help them to ensure compliance with legislative requirements, assess risks, dispel myths concerning people with convictions, and enable employers to make informed decisions when deciding whether to employ people with convictions. 

Employers are often concerned about employing people with convictions. NIACRO has developed this CPD-certified training to help employers understand the law and feel more confident in making informed decisions about employing people with convictions.

The CPD Certification Service has approved this training which has been designed and is delivered by NIACRO's Disclosure specialist advisors with acute front-end experience in supporting people with convictions and advising and training employers across all industry sectors. 

Specifically, participants will learn;

  1. The difference between a conviction and a criminal record
  2. When to apply different types of AccessNI checks and how to interpret the information disclosed
  3. Rehabilitation periods for different types of convictions
  4. Best practice recruitment to support people with convictions into employment
