This document outlines the training available from external organisations to raise recruiters' awareness and understanding of criminal records and how to manage risk through the recruitment process.

Training for recruiters can:

  • enable them to better understand a Ban the Box recruitment process;

  • familiarise them with the relevant legislation and terminology;

  • equip them with the skills to assess the risk and relevance of criminal convictions.

Through implementing a Ban the Box recruitment process, employers consider an applicant’s criminal convictions in an informed way. To support this, employers may wish to provide training for HR teams or recruiting managers to raise awareness and understanding.
