Instep UK take the safeguarding of all our learners and staff very seriously, and we have policies and procedures in place to ensure that all of our team embody our safeguarding strategy for the protection of any harm to young people and vulnerable adults by abuse and/or neglect.
All our staff are trained to recognise and support our learners in the workplace and to follow the internal safeguarding policy, which is reviewed on a yearly basis, therefore ensuring that we are continually 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 and to follow the 5 Rs for their responsibilities to record and report any concerns with respect and consideration to those concerned.

At Instep we take a holistic approach to the health and wellbeing of our learners and colleagues. We have an accredited Mental Health First Aider in our business. A Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is the go-to person for anyone who is going through some form of mental health issue. The first aider will be present to help guide the person in distress to the relevant help that they need.
