Safeguarding & support for learners

Your safety and wellbeing are important to us.

If you're suffering bullying, violence, or abuse of any kind, don't keep quiet.  We can help.  Talk to your tutor, Learner support officer (LSO), keyworker, support or EHCP tutor, or the centre manager.  Each centres has at least one safeguarding officer.  It is normally the centres manager, but you can speak to any adult you feel comfortable talking to.
