Safeguarding and Prevent policies
WELL Training is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all stakeholders by taking all reasonable steps to protect them from harm and accepts its corporate responsibility for the well-being and safety for its stakeholders including children and vulnerable adults.
WELL Training recognises its responsibility and acknowledges that it our organisational responsibility to uphold British Values and to safeguard the welfare of all stakeholders by creating an environment that protects them from harm and reduces any potential risks of being exposed to violence, extremism, exploitation or victimisation.
WELL Associates Ltd is committed to protecting freedom of speech and academic freedom together with protecting and safeguarding its students and staff from the risk of being drawn into terrorism.
Our policy is written with reference to the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and revised guidance issued by the Department for Education on 1 April 2021.
The Act places a duty on learning providers to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.’
Terrorism is defined as violent extremism and non-violent extremism, which can create an atmosphere conducive to terrorism and can popularise views which terrorists exploit.
The Act also notes that learning providers must seek to balance this duty with their commitment to freedom of speech and the importance of academic freedom.
