The education sector is an important pillar of any society. These institutions and
professionals mould our future through teaching. As such, it's critical to ensure
we have safe and secure learning environments for students and employees alike.
Things like employee vetting, security protocols, compliance and crisis management
are the backbone of these efforts. That's where Barringtons comes in - with
over 25 years of experience helping institutions plan, prepare and manage their
processes, we are confident we can provide invaluable support to the education sector.
For more information on how Barringtons' services can help you excel in education
sector management, reach out to one of our team members today.
The education sector relies on the skills and passion of the people in it. Without
strong and dedicated professionals, there is little hope for effective education
across Australia. That's why the vetting and training processes are so important.
You want to secure the right people with the right skills so you can present a safe
and secure learning environment for your students. Barringtons can ensure that happens.
- Online Training: You need staff that are not only skilled in educational
competencies, but more general subject areas as well. From work health and safety
in education to email etiquette - Barringtons provides a wide range of online training
courses that are comprehensive and time effective.
- Background Checks: Vetting is an important element of hiring staff
in any industry. However, it's even more critical in the education sector. With
decades of experience completing background checks, Barringtons can present you
with comprehensive recommendations regarding potential staff.
- Security: Having a safe and secure education institution is a top
priority for any leader. We can help you develop an effective and enforceable security
plan for any situation.
Compliance is particularly important in the education industry. It is important
for every school across the country to meet particular standards and benchmarks.
When compliance isn't a priority there can be major education gaps for students.
Additionally, compliance in the realm of work health and safety and contractor management
is critical to keep all students and staff members safe. Here's how Barringtons
can help you manage these areas:
- General Compliance: Smartek was created to adapt to the needs of
every individual user. Our software is customisable and comprehensive - allowing
you to manage all of your various compliance functions.

industry. Whether it's hiring temporary staff or contracting a company for consultation,
Smartek centralises the management of these different contracts. This allows you
to juggle the needs of contractors more effectively.
- Work Health and Safety: WHS is an important area of focus for any
organisation. Smartek helps you keep a close eye on your WHS standards in a quick
and efficient way. Ultimately, this helps you ensure your education institution
is safe and compliant.
You want to provide your students and employees with a safe and secure learning
environment. This requires a lot of strategic planning and continued management
of security protocols. Barringtons has decades of experience helping leaders create
and sustain effective security processes and plans.
- Security Risk and Design: Security in education establishments
is largely dependent on having a plan in place to address risks. Our team at Barringtons
has been creating security plans on behalf of organisations for over two decades
- helping your team minimise risk.
- Security Management: These designs are important but they need
continued management to stay relevant and effective. We can help your team manage
your various security processes to ensure maximum protection.
- Investigations: If things go wrong within your education institution,
you will want to find the source of the problem quickly and address it effectively.
Barringtons are experts in conducting thorough and discreet investigations.
- Security Manpower: When you need a little extra security, it can
be extremely useful to employ the use of security professionals. Barringtons can
connect you with top security personnel for any of your needs.
Amongst all other areas of focus in the education, sector preparedness and resilience
is often pushed to the bottom of the priority list. Yet ensuring you're prepared
