BMet has a duty to protect and promote the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults receiving education and training at our colleges.
We are committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding at all times. BMet promotes a culture of vigilance where all staff know their responsibilities and act accordingly, and all learners are aware of what they can expect and what to do if they have concerns.
BMet is committed to ensuring:
- Children, young people and vulnerable adults have a safe environment to learn in.
- Children, young people and vulnerable adults who are suffering, or likely to suffer, significant harm are identified and action is taken to address issues, in partnership with other organisations where appropriate.
- Appropriate action is taken to see that such children, young people and vulnerable adults are kept safe in the college environment and on college related activities.
- All staff receive safeguarding training, and we have a number of nominated safeguarders who are trained to a more advanced level. We have a Designated Senior Person with a lead accountability for children, young people and vulnerable adults.
There is also a Safeguarding Committee made up of the above staff, the Director of Human Resources and a Designated Governor from the Corporation to ensure a culture of vigilance and safety is encouraged across the college.
