Safeguarding and Prevent

Learn more about Safeguarding and Prevent

Our Values

Our aim is to ensure that all our learners are treated with respect and that we equip them with the skills and qualities to succeed in life.

We expect all learners and staff to respect the Grŵp's values by ensuring that we understand and celebrate our diversity, challenging any prejudices, bullying or harassment.

British values

Fundamental British Values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK. These values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of Law
  • Respect and Tolerance
  • Individual Liberty


Safeguarding is the action that we take to promote the welfare of our learners and protect them from harm.

Harm means anything which is happening to a learner that puts them at risk. This includes risk of psychological, physical, sexual, financial abuse and or neglect. It includes grooming, physical attack and being forced to do something that you don’t want to do. It may include bullying. It could take place at home, at college/ training, in the workplace, with friends, online, in the street; anywhere.

We have procedures in place to support our learners:

  • what we do if we think learners are being harmed (or likely to be harmed).
  • what should be done if a learner thinks someone else is being harmed.
  • what we do if we think a learner is about to harm someone else.
  • what we need to do, to keep learners and others safe.


Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism. Prevent is part of CONTEST, the Government's counter-terrorism strategy. The main aim of Prevent is to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism and violent extremism. At the heart of Prevent is safeguarding children and adults and providing early intervention to protect and divert people away from being drawn into terrorist activity.

What to do if you would like help or have concerns

If you want to discuss any safeguarding concern at the college, you can:

If you are a work based learner with a different training provider, please contact them directly.

If you are under 18 and you are at risk of significant harm, or you know someone under the age of 18 that is at risk of significant harm, and you discuss this with a member of staff, that member of staff has a duty to report this to a Safeguarding Officer. The Safeguarding Officer will then decide on the best action to take to make sure that you or the person you know is safe. Information on what we do when we have a safeguarding concern is described in our policy.
