Safeguarding - City and Islington College


Safeguarding is the term used when talking about protecting vulnerable adults and young people from abuse or neglect. At City and Islington College, we are committed to ensuring that every member of staff is safeguarding-trained to help ensure our college is a safe place for your child to study.

Each of our centres has appointed Safeguarding Officers who can be contacted about any concerns; posters are placed around all of our centres so that students can identify and contact a Safeguarding Officer, should they need to.

All complaints, allegations or suspicions of abuse or Safeguarding concerns are dealt with through our Safeguarding, Child Protection and Adults at Risk Policy. The policy can be found on the Capital City College Group website

Safeguarding also requires collaboration with parents. We know that parenting a young person can sometimes be very challenging. Maintaining a positive relationship can at times be difficult as they grow and become independent, develop new relationships and seek to find their own identity.

There have been many reports in the media recently of young people being targeted by adults who hold extreme views that advocate violence. A number of young people have been persuaded to leave the UK in secret against the wishes of their families, putting themselves in extreme danger. This page aims to help parents and carers recognise when their child may be at risk of radicalisation and where to get help if they are worried.
