What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is a term used to describe the duties and responsibilities that those providing a health, social or education service have to protect individuals from harm. This includes safer staff recruitment and the Colleges Safeguarding Policy.

As part of our induction process, all learners will understand how to recognise abuse, discrimination, bullying and harassment (including 'cyber-bullying') and what action to take if they or other learners are subjected to such treatment. Staff and learners should be able to understand the six categories of abuse as defined by the Department of Health:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Psychological/Emotional Abuse
  • Financial or Material Abuse
  • Neglect and Acts of Omission
  • Discrimination

We commit to ensuring that staff who work with young people and vulnerable adults are vetted by conducting Disclosure and Barring Service checks (DBS).  In addition, staff receive training on safeguarding and prevent, including regular termly updates. We have a team of designated senior persons at the college who have received specific safeguarding training; someone will always be on hand to help if you have any concerns.
