    15.9 Concerns about an Individual's Behaviour in their Private Life

    Last updated 12/11/2018

    You may wish to make recommendations to the employer or registered provider or agency and you may wish to comment on the suitability of the person to continue to work with children. In some cases it will be apparent that someone is unsuitable i.e. wanted for sex offence against children in their care. In some more subtle cases this may require elaboration or you may come to the view that an individual has harmed a child through their actions but this is unintended or as a result of inexperience. You must also make recommendation about training or change in policy/ procedure. Always be mindful that the employer makes the ultimate decision to take the person through their own disciplinary process or not.
