Safeguarding Statement

Within EDGEWORKS, We treat all our learners with the respect they deserve. We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our learners. We have developed a safeguarding policy that aims to meet these duties.

A safer learning environment is about more than safer recruitment of staff and protecting vulnerable adults from harm. These are both vitally important and should be seen as strategies and processes that are part of a culture of well-being, safety and security, which applies to all learners and all staff (NIACE)

The policy covers abuse and neglect, prevention of bullying, harassment and discrimination.

All staff have received training on safeguarding issues and are supported by the centre manager to comply with this policy.

If you, as a learner here, have any concern about your well-being, safety or rights, then you should talk to your assessor / manager.
