Some of our key policies are summarised below. Further details are included in the student handbook and copies of the full policy documents are available from reception at Macbeth Centre.
It is our policy to help students enrol on the course that is right for them. Any entry requirements will be clearly set out in the course information sheet. We will also make it clear where courses are designed to meet the needs of specific groups.
We produce a disability statement each year setting out how we will support disabled people across our service. Please see the student handbook for more information.
The adult education service will ensure that no-one is discriminated against because of their ethnic or national origin, race or colour, gender, age, class, sexual orientation, or because of their religious or political beliefs, disability or income. If you feel you have been discriminated against please talk to your lecturer or ask at reception to speak to a manager.
We are committed to safeguarding young people, and vulnerable adults, and also to providing a safe and secure learning environment for all learners. We work with the local safeguarding boards and recruit and train staff in line with current legislation.
If you have any concerns about the treatment of young people, or of vulnerable adults please contact Eamon Scanlon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From 1 July 2015, Parliament places a statutory requirement on the Council to “have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.”
‘Prevent’ focuses on supporting and protecting people who might be susceptible to radicalisation. Our Adult Learning & Skills Service uses established safeguarding processes to ensure awareness of ‘Prevent’ for both staff and learners and so help divert potentially vulnerable people from becoming involved in extreme or radical groups.
