Safeguarding is a term that covers many things – all concerned with making sure learners are safe, healthy, protected from harm and enjoy positive wellbeing.
An important part of the college’s role is to equip learners to deal with situations that put their well-being at risk, both in college and outside, and both now and in the future.
Staff are carefully recruited, trained and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked. The college works closely with partners in Children’s and Social Services to support vulnerable learners. Large teams of youth workers, specialist support staff and tutors provide high levels of support to all learners, within a high-quality environment, to protect them from harm and prepare them for a safe, healthy and successful future.
