Safe and Respectful Culture
The College is committed to keeping a safe and respectful culture where you can flourish and achieve. We promote British Values through our Respect and Prevent campaigns. We aim to make our staff and students aware of, and how to respond to, risks such as:
- Physical, emotional abuse and neglect
- Internet safety
- Bullying & Cyberbullying
- Extremism & Radicalisation (Prevent)
- Sexual Abuse and Child Sexual Exploitation
- Financial abuse
- Domestic violence
- Substance Abuse
- Drug Crime
- Child Sexual Exploitation
The importance of tolerance and respect for diversity and equal opportunity are promoted through the Colleges as part of the safe and respectful culture and the ongoing Respect Campaign.
Prevent is a legal duty placed on the College to protect vulnerable individuals from being drawn into extremism and radicalisation. The young people being radicalised are often students in FE/HE environments.
What does Radicalisation and Extremism mean?
- Radicalisation is the process through which an individual changes to become more militant or extremist with an intent to become involved with or support violence
- Extremism is when an individual or group holds extreme political or religious views
