Safety is fundamental to our community and we take responsibility to foster a safe and respectful environment, with standards of behaviour that we expect all staff and learners to observe. The disciplinary process aims to enforce these standards and there is also a complaints procedure if students are not happy with any aspect of their course.

Health and Safety is an intrinsic part of all our courses and regular risk assessments are carried out on employers’ premises where students undertake work placement. Trips and outdoor activities are carefully planned so that any risks are properly identified and students’ safety ensured.

The College is proud of our occupational health and safety performance, being only one of six Colleges in the UK to hold the RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Safety and Health for many years.
