Safeguarding & PREVENT for Employers

Farnborough College of Technology is responsible for the safeguarding of their students which extends beyond the college campus, including apprentices. We ensure that as employers you receive sufficient support and training.

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding means the overall well-being of students, ensuring safety and care as well as protection.

What is Prevent?

The College has a legal obligation (Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015) to prevent people from being radicalised and drawn into terrorism. This covers all students regardless of age and requires us to be aware of any potential dangers and who to do about them.

You have a responsibility to:

  • Assess any risks to students before commencement of employment
  • Understand the safeguarding requirements and ensure measures are put in place to report these concerns (nominate a designated safeguarding colleague)
  • Provide appropriate induction, training and supervision to students
  • Allow students to converse about their concerns about extremism including topics and events in the news
