Employ My Ability places the upmost importance on safeguarding and the safety and wellbeing of all our students. We share the belief that safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility and have a dedicated safeguarding team that promotes awareness and is always available to provide support to students, their families and our staff team.
All staff, volunteers and trustees are trained in both children and adult safeguarding and we have established safeguarding policies and procedures in place. Safeguarding themes are embedded into our curriculum and we pride ourselves on going above and beyond to make college a safe, happy and thriving environment for all.
