This model worked well in the previous Connecting Classrooms programme (2015-2018), through which over 56,000 teachers were trained in the UK and overseas. Delivery of teacher training will begin in January 2019.</p>

Therefore, we believe there are alternative non-legislative mechanisms which better address this issue, such as those announced at the 18 October Safeguarding Summit. These include an Interpol pilot to improve background checks, provide advice to employers on international vetting and identify high-risk individuals; a new passport for aid workers to prove an individual’s identity and provide their vetting status; and a Disclosure of Misconduct scheme for the NGO sector to allow organisations to share information about an employee’s past misconduct. These tools are designed to work alongside existing mechanisms, such as DBS, and we are confident they will lead to tangible improvements in safeguarding standards and better protection of vulnerable adults and children in the aid sector.</p>
