Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children covers more than just child protection.
The requirements for the College are for policies and procedures that meet the welfare and safeguarding needs of children, vulnerable adults and students. Our policy supports a safe and secure environment in which to study, as well as ensuring we follow appropriate practices for staff recruitment and selection.
