Reporting and Key Contacts
At Derwentside College we want all learners to achieve their maximum potential in an environment which feels safe, secure and supportive. If you are worried about anything or have concerns about your well-being, talk to a member of staff such as your tutor/training consultant or any member of staff you feel you can talk to.
The College also has a Designated Safeguarding Lead who is responsible for all aspects of safeguarding in the College can support you with any concerns you may have.
The people listed below will be on hand to help you.
Please note that Safeguarding and/or Prevent concerns do not need to relate to College work/activities.
As a College, we recognise that there needs to be a reporting mechanism for learners who are based in the workplace or who are on work placement. Therefore, if you have any concerns, you can use the following form to report a safeguarding concern. This form will be sent to the DSL once submitted.
Report a Concern Form
You can report a safeguarding concern in any way you choose (speaking to your Lecturer/Training Consultant, contacting the DSL or completing the form). What is important, is that you report any concerns that you have so that we can support you.
