Stay Safe: Creating a safe and welcoming environment for learning
City of Wolverhampton College acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of students, apprentices and staff and is fully committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities and government guidance.
The College is committed to maintaining procedures and practices which safeguard and promote the welfare of all students, apprentices and staff by ensuring the Safeguarding Policy and Procedure meets the requirements set by the Department for Education’s statutory guidance for Colleges, ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’.
The Safeguarding Policy and Procedures recognises that the welfare and interest of students, apprentices and staff are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of age, gender, religion or beliefs, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or social-economic background, all students, apprentices and staff have a positive and enjoyable experience at City of Wolverhampton College in a safe and welcoming environment.
A copy of the latest Safeguarding Policy and Procedures can be found here.
We have also signed the Safer Students Charter, which means that together with other colleges in the West Midlands, we follow robust safeguarding approaches, and together we have designed a programme of safety activities for you to attend or be involved in throughout your time with us.
