Safeguarding Policy

We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our learners under the age of 18. We have developed a Safeguarding Policy on Child Protection and Vulnerable Adults that aims to meet these duties.

The policy includes child protection, prevention of bullying, harassment and discrimination, dealing with attendance issues and meeting the needs of sick students and security.

  • Talk to any members of staff
  • Talk to your Training Officer

PREVENT POSITION STATEMENT

The United Kingdom faces a range of terrorist threats.  The international threat level in the UK is currently categorized as ‘severe’, meaning that a terrorist attack is a strong possibility.

The Government’s Counter –Terrorism and Security Act (2015) contains a duty on specified authorities, including schools, colleges and universities, to take appropriate measures to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism or extremism and to support those who might be susceptible to radicalisation.

Chiltern Training recognises its statutory and moral duty to safeguard the welfare of its students and staff. Protection from the risk of terrorism or involvement in terrorist activity forms part of this safeguarding duty. Chiltern Training has produced a Prevent Policy setting out how it will exercise its responsibilities in providing this protection. The policy complies with Government’s Prevent duty on Further Education establishments.  A Prevent Action Plan has been produced to secure further improvements in mitigating this risk. The Prevent Policy and Action Plan will be kept under continuous review.
