Ciara has the following query and would like to tap into your collective knowledge
‘I was just wondering if anyone had an guidelines on HSE requirements needed for the preschool to accept a 17 year old girl for 2 weeks work experience? As she is under 18 years of age no Garda vetting is needed but should I still seek Curriculum Vitae and references etc…. Any help would be grateful as I just want to ensure everything would be above board if we had a HSE inspection.’
