Safeguarding guide for apprentices


We take our responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our apprentices seriously. This guide gives you information on safeguarding and the support services we offer for apprentices.

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding is everyone’s business. It is about protecting children, young people (under 18) and adults at risk from abuse or harm. In the context of UCLan, this usually means providing a safe environment for them to study, work, visit and participate in activities. We also have a responsibility to act where we become aware that a child, young person, or vulnerable adult is at risk outside of the university.

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

If you have a concern, pass it on. Contact our Safeguarding Leads.
