The Manchester College building


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 a range of external agencies across the city to support vulnerable learners. Student experience teams, 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.

In order to ensure our employer partners offering work placements share our commitment to safeguarding, we have produced a simple guide to safeguarding for employers including details on what to do if you are concerned about a young person or vulnerable adult.
