What is Safeguarding?

Apprentify has a duty to safeguard and promote the well-being of children (under the age of 18), young and vulnerable people.  This includes the need to ensure that all adults who work with children, young and vulnerable people are competent, confident and safe to do so. Safeguarding means ‘recognising that the needs, wellbeing, and safety of all apprentices and staff and that actions relating to this are in line with legislation, recommendations and guidelines. All adults who work with children, young and vulnerable people are accountable for the way in which they exercise authority, manage risk, use resources and safeguard children, young and vulnerable people.

Local authorities have overarching responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young and vulnerable people in their area. This includes specific duties in relation to children (under the age of 18) in need and children suffering, or likely to suffer, significant harm, regardless of where they are found under sections 17 and 47 of the Children Act 1989 (amended 2004)

Whilst local authorities play a lead role, safeguarding children, young and vulnerable people and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who encounters children, young and vulnerable people have a role to play. 

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children, young and vulnerable people and protect them from harm. Safeguarding means: protecting children, young and vulnerable people from abuse and maltreatment. preventing harm, health or development.

What does Safeguarding mean?

Safeguarding means ‘recognising that the needs, wellbeing, and safety’ of all apprentices and staff and that actions relating to this are in line with legislation, recommendations and guidelines.

What are my responsibilities as an Employer?

  • To understand what is meant by safeguarding and promote the welfare of Apprentices 
  • Be aware of your statutory duties towards the welfare of individuals
  • Be familiar with our guidance on the reporting arrangements

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure employees working alongside Apprentices have had the relevant DBS checks and of sound character and judgement and will not pose as any threat or danger to Apprentices.

Does Safeguarding just apply to children?

The Safeguarding Policy for Apprentify reflects the importance of our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our apprentices and staff by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.   

What is the purpose of Apprentify's Safeguarding Policy?

The main aims of this policy are to ensure that staff are working together and fully engaged in being vigilant about raising awareness, embedding and monitoring safeguarding; that they overcome professional disbelief that such issues will not happen at Apprentify and ensure that we work alongside other professional bodies and agencies to ensure that our apprentices and staff are safe from harm.
