What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding staff and visitors is a crucial issue for any organisation. Safeguarding means:

  • Promotion of your health and development
  • Ensuring your safety and care
  • Ensuring you are offered the best life chances
  • Protection from abuse and neglect
  • Prevention of bullying and harassment

The term ‘safeguarding’ embraces both child and vulnerable adult protection and preventative approaches to keep our staff, learners and visitors safe. Safeguarding encompasses both health and safety, welfare and well-being.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment.

If you have any concerns about your wellbeing, safety or rights, then you should:

  • Talk to your Tutor/Assessor
  • Talk to your Line Manager
  • Contact the Safeguarding Lead (02071172690 ext 170)
