Global English TESOL Safeguarding Policy
We are committed to promoting a safe environment and culture within our online training and teaching programmes by adhering to safe working practices, and we acknowledge the principle that safeguarding is everyone’s business. Our aim is to treat students fairly and without prejudice or discrimination, while maintaining staff, tutor and student wellbeing.
Staff and representatives of the above organisations must ensure that their behaviour promotes and allows any vulnerable adults/adults at risk to live free from harm and abuse, neglect, discrimination, human trafficking and physical, sexual (including sexual harassment) and emotional (including the abuse of power/trust and any form of coercion) exploitation.
Our staff and representatives are required to understand the importance of safeguarding vulnerable adults/adults at risk by:
upholding the dignity and respect vulnerable adults/adults at risk
taking preventative steps to ensure a safe environment for vulnerable adults/adults at risk
responding quickly and appropriately to any safeguarding concerns that are raised.
A concern can arise when abusive behaviour is observed or suspected, when an allegation is made or disclosed, or where there are signs and symptoms of suspected abuse on the victim.
Any allegation or concern regarding the abuse a vulnerable adult/adult at risk must be treated seriously and be reported to the Safeguarding officer for Global English TESOL within 24 hours of having been made aware of the specific concern.
The Global English TESOL safeguarding officer is William Bradridge and concerns should be made in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Global English TESOL Safeguarding Policy and Staff and Tutor Guidance for Safeguarding are reviewed by Global English TESOL on a regular basis to ensure they are adequate and relevant to current UK safeguarding standards.
