Not all recruitment firms are the same 

APSCo has developed Compliance+ to provide an uncompromising quality benchmark for Education and Social Work recruitment companies and we are currently developing a benchmark for the healthcare sector. It is the best practice quality standard for Education and Social Work recruitment businesses and compels members to go beyond statutory safeguarding standards and aim for excellence in competency selection and service quality. Compliance+ is a mandatory requirement for all APSCo Social Work members.

What will it mean for my business? 

  • It certifies safeguarding which goes beyond statutory requirements and is recognised as a certificated standard by the CCS.
  • It is designed to help safeguard and improve outcomes for children and vulnerable adults.
  • Your firm will undergo an annual independent on-site audit process undertaken by a professional body to confirm consistency with safeguarding.

The APSCo Compliance+ Standards Committee ensures that Compliance+ remains relevant and appropriate and provides governance of the audit process. To view our committee members, click here.
