Our Approach


At Smart Training & Recruitment, we are committed to promoting safety, safeguarding the welfare of children, young people, and adults at risk, and fostering a proactive culture of awareness and protection.

Safeguarding: Creating a Safe and Supportive Environment for All

Our aim is to:

  • Promote safe practices and challenge poor and unsafe practice
  • Ensure that all staff are aware of the Prevent agenda and have an understanding that any concerns they have are raised in the same way that all safeguarding concerns are raised
  • Ensure staff receive adequate training and supervision
  • Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about the welfare of a child or adult at risk and take action to ensure safety
  • Take appropriate action to prevent unsuitable people from working with children, young people and adults at risk
  • Develop a proactive culture in which both learners and staff are aware of the actions they need to take to become and remain safe

In pursuit of these aims, the Board of Directors will approve and annually review policies and procedures relating to safeguarding with the aim of:

  • Raising awareness of issues relating to the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and the promotion of a safe environment for children and young people;
  • Aiding the identification of children and young people at risk of significant harm and providing procedures for reporting concerns;
  • Establishing procedures for reporting and dealing with allegations of abuse against members of staff; and
  • The safe recruitment of staff.

This policy and procedure must be seen in the context of supporting our learners by:

  • Being healthy
  • Staying safe; (this includes having due regard to the Prevent agenda and ensuring students are not at risk of radicalisation)
  • Enjoying and achieving
  • Making a positive contribution
  • Achieving economic wellbeing
  • Promoting British Values

Safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk covers more than child protection.

Issues such as health and safety, dealing with bullying, E-safety and mental wellbeing are also all covered under safeguarding.
