Safeguarding | FW Solutions


Training Providers have a duty of care to ensure that learners following training programmes with them are kept safe from potential harm – this is commonly known as Safeguarding. Safeguarding is essential to ensure the development and well-being of young people and adults alike. The potential harm that can affect learners is wide-ranging and includes things such as bullying, exposure to extremism, inappropriate supervision and unsafe workplaces or working practices.

The official terror threat level for the UK has been raised from “substantial” to “severe” following the recent Islamist attacks in mainland Europe. Severe is the second highest out of five, behind critical which means an attack is highly likely. As an Independent Training Provider in the FE Sector,  we continue to stay alert to evidence of radicalization and ensure all staff have up to date and relevant training in accordance with the Prevent Duty.
