Keeping students safe
Students at our colleges are given information on staying safe: appropriate behaviour, both online and offline. We do follow up and refer any concerning behaviour, working closely with agencies, such as the police and social care.
Our Safeguarding team is available to discuss any issue you may be concerned about. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's all about respect
We expect everyone in Activate Learning to behave responsibly and to respect other people's rights. This is why our students sign the code of conduct when they enrol and take part in equality and diversity initiatives.
We are committed to freedom of expression within the law. We have a duty as an educational body to protect health, morals, rights and reputations and prevent disorder or crime. We will not provide a platform for speakers or organisations that promote violence, religious hatred, or racist, sexist or homophobic views, contrary to our equality and diversity policy and likely to be unlawful.
Join the big debate
A priority for us is not only to develop you through teaching and learning, but also to:
- Develop your personal skills
- Strengthen your critical thinking skills
- Get you ready for employment by demonstrating behaviour that industry employers will seek when interviewing potential candidates
We have developed our “Big Debate” curriculum, with opportunities to discuss and debate hot topics such as: the EU referendum and what leaving the EU means for us, the impact of bullying and how prevalent this is in today’s society and radicalisation – what is it and how are people drawn in to take part in criminal or extreme behaviours by other people?
This will help make you a well-rounded individual and to make informed choices in life, so you can identify when you are being confronted with ideology that may challenge our values.
