Kloodle: Employment Provider Code of Practice
You can download a Employment Provider Code of Practcie
Kloodle is designed to be a student-led platform which introduces students to a wide range of employer organisations, allows students to “follow” organisations’ news and learn about their industry sectors. In addition, Kloodle facilitates communication and interaction between employment providers and students, in the context of both general engagement / learning about the organisation and in the context of promoting specific career opportunities.
Kloodle’s mission is to continue to work towards raising students’ future career aspirations and to continue to provide a solution to bridge the gap between education and employers with regard to the current skills shortage.
The safeguarding of children is everyone’s responsibility. The purpose of the Kloodle Employment Provider Code of Practice is to provide guidance for Employment Providers whenever they are using Kloodle. Kloodle operates a child-centred and coordinated approach to safeguarding. Partner schools, college and employment providers must recognise their responsibility in promoting safe on-line behaviour and adhere to Kloodle’s safeguarding policy at all times.
This document is intended to outline best practice with regards to engaging with users and is intended to be used as a formal safeguarding guideline to support Employment Providers. It should be used in conjunction with organisation’s related codes of conduct and operational procedures relating to recruitment and student / entry level talent liaison.
According to HM Government, a child is recognised as anyone who has not yet reached their 18th birthday. The situation is more complex for teenage students who have reached the age of 18 whilst still attending a college. For this category, 18 year olds should still be treated as ‘children’ under safeguarding policies.
For the purpose of this document, ‘institution’ refers to any educational establishment where Kloodle is used by children. This includes schools, sixth form colleges and Further Education providers. ‘Employment Provider’ refers to employer related organisations, apprenticeship providers and other training providers that offer post-education career / work related opportunities via Kloodle.
A reminder that:

INCIDENT RESPONSE PROCESS (EMPLOYMENT PROVIDER USER)
On-line safety is central to the relationship that we build between users and Employment Providers. In the event that institutions raise safeguarding concerns regarding Student, Staff, Admin or Employment Provider use, Kloodle will take any concerns seriously and initiate an Incident Response Process (IRP). The IRP is designed to quickly assess and act on any such concern. Equally, in the event that any person acting on behalf of an Employment Provider receives any communication from a student user that is considered to be inappropriate, offensive or raises any concerns, it is the Employment Provider’s responsibility to immediately cease contact with the user and to inform Kloodle of the nature of the correspondence. In this instance, an IRP will also be initiated.
If the concern raised involves Employment Provider misuse, Kloodle will immediately suspend the related employer account until investigations have been concluded. If the misuse contravenes Kloodle’s Safeguarding Policy or Employment Provider Code of Practice, Kloodle may be duty bound to seek appropriate formal intervention.
Kloodle reserves the right to suspend or terminate any accounts in order to protect its full range of social stakeholder communities.
At our earliest knowledge of any raised concern, Kloodle will immediately:
