Instep UK Ltd take the safeguarding of all our learners and colleagues very seriously. We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all of our team embody our safeguarding strategy for the protection of our learners.
All our colleagues are trained to recognise and support our learners in the workplace and to follow the internal safeguarding policy, which is reviewed on an annual basis. This approach ensures we are up to date with any new legislation and that we remain committed to the welfare of all our people alongside the government PREVENT strategy and British Values.
We have a robust recruitment process in place, which ensures that our team of Trainers and Tutors are fully DBS checked and that they complete a full induction to include safeguarding and PREVENT training, which is then regularly updated as required.
All of our staff are trained to identify the signs of a safeguarding need, to include physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. Following the five R’s our staff understand their responsibilities to record and report any concerns with respect and consideration to those concerned.
