SAFEGUARDING

At Gi Group, the welfare and wellbeing of all our Apprentices is of upmost importance to us. This is why we have a dedicated safeguarding team and ensure all of our trainers receive training in the safeguarding of young people and vulnerable adults in our care.

Our approach to safeguarding includes mentoring, raising awareness for potential warning signs and supporting those who may be experiencing difficulties. We do this by:

  • Creating a culture where everyone feels comfortable talking about difficult issues
  • Increasing everyone’s understanding for the need for safeguarding
  • Empowering people to speak up for those that are vulnerable
  • Raising awareness of issues so that everyone is mindful of the impact of their own behaviour
  • Training Gi Group staff to know how to deal with safeguarding concerns
  • Making sure we all have access to additional external help and support if needed

PREVENT

Prevent is a safeguarding programme aimed at protecting individuals and communities from the threat of terrorism and extremism. It forms part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. Within Gi Group this means protecting our Apprentices and providing support to anyone who may be vulnerable or particularly susceptible to being drawn into terrorism.
