Safeguarding is the act of protecting a child’s or vulnerable adults right to live in safety – free from abuse and neglect. The act of safeguarding can take on many different forms. Often the term is used as an umbrella for various ways of keeping individuals safe.
An adult can be classed as vulnerable if they have care and support needs, such as older people or those with disabilities. As well as adults who may have communication difficulties.
Total Training provision (TTP) believe that it is unacceptable for a child, young person, or vulnerable adult to experience abuse of any kind. TTP recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of a child, young person, or vulnerable adult within our training environments and those who come into contact with our organisation.
In order to maintain the safe and secure learning environment that Total Training Provision provides, we have a number of measures in place. All TTP employees have a responsibility regarding safeguarding, however some of them have specific roles.
Wellbeing Officers are responsible for the day-to-day operational oversight of safeguarding issues. The wellbeing team will deal with employee concerns over staff and learner’s welfare, signpost, offer guidance and liaise with the DSO for concerns requiring referral to external agencies.
