Safeguarding

The United Colleges Group are committed to creating and maintaining a friendly, welcoming and safe learning environment for learners, staff and visitors. The safety and welfare of our learners is of great importance to us and we will protect all our students and staff whether learning is taking place on or off college premises.

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is the process of creating a safe environment for all students and staff that actively prevents harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. The College expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to respect and engage with this commitment.

What is Prevent?

The Prevent duty is part of the overall counter-terrorism strategy designed to reduce the threat from terrorism through prevention.

Complying with the Prevent duty includes promoting and exemplifying British values: i.e. democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, tolerance and mutual respect and different faiths and beliefs.
