NIACE promotes safeguarding across the organisation and throughout our work. We recommend that all providers in the learning and skills sector consider how their organisation can implement safer working practices, environments and policies.
A safer learning environment is about more than safer recruitment of staff and protecting vulnerable adults from harm. These are both vitally important. However they should be seen as part of a jigsaw of strategies and processes that are part of a culture of well-being, safety and security, which applies to all learners and all staff.
There are many websites to support providers to develop their thinking in relation to safeguarding. In the first instance visit the Independent Safeguarding Authority website.
