At Lambeth College we give the utmost priority to ensuring that our safeguarding provision is of high-quality and supports teaching and learning. We listen carefully to our learners and take seriously what they tell us.
The Principal and senior managers take safeguarding and the prevent agenda extremely seriously and, with full support from Trustees, training is delivered regularly for all staff. Senior managers take a strong lead, with responsibility and accountability for safeguarding arrangements clearly identified. Managers’ scrutiny of safeguarding practices is thorough, with frequent monitoring and reporting and we pride ourselves on good-quality training that results in a confident workforce that is well equipped to promote safeguarding and the Prevent Agenda.
Staff at the college are committed to ensuring the safety of learners and value the importance of supporting individuals to develop a better awareness of their own safety as well as proactively consulting leaners about safeguarding arrangements. We have developed, prioritised and embedded a culture of putting learners’ safety first.
Safeguarding arrangements are fully in place at all Lambeth College campuses and staff are dedicated to extending this practice to include premises where learners work with employers. We also have strong collaborations, with a wide range of external agencies, to support safeguarding and the Prevent Agenda.
