Safeguarding as a phrase covers many things, but ultimately it is all about keeping people safe and protecting their wellbeing.
We take the safeguarding of our learners seriously and an important part of the work that we do at Stockport Continuing Adult Education Service is to provide learners with the support and information they need to deal with situations that put their wellbeing at risk, whether that’s at one of our adult learning centres or in external environments.
To help keep our learners safe, SCES:
It has its own Safeguarding policy, which follows the Stockport Council Safeguarding Procedure.
Work closely with other departments within the Council and external organisations to support at-risk adults.
Ensures that all staff members are carefully recruited and trained and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked.
Makes specialist support staff and tutors available to provide support and signpost to all learners if required.
