GP Strategies takes our responsibility in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of apprentices, employers and staff very seriously, by protecting them from abuse, neglect and bullying. As the employer of an apprentice, it is important that you understand your responsibilities to them and what safeguarding means to you. We recognise that we have a duty to help employers, staff and learners to recognise their responsibilities and provide guidance, support and training.


Safeguarding Mission Statement

Our statutory duty is to safeguard and promote the welfare of our learners and staff whilst learning, at work, at home, and within their communities. We aim to ensure that our safeguarding practice complies with government guidance and with best practices, including the Children Act 1989 and the Care Act 2014, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2022, Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022, and the Education and Training (Welfare of Children) Act 2021.  We will take a zero-tolerance approach to all types of abuse and instruct all of our staff to report any incidents, concerns or disclosures. Our safer recruitment policy is designed to protect learners at every point when they come into contact with our staff and those working on our behalf. The overall purpose of our Safer Recruitment policy and the checks it entails is to help identify and deter or reject individuals who are deemed a risk.
