Safeguarding team

Our Safeguarding Team help college to provide a safe environment in which you can learn, work and enjoy your time with us.

If you need help to stay safe, or you are at risk of or already experiencing harm; the college Safeguarding Team will take appropriate action to ensure you stay safe in college, at home and/or in a work based setting. All college staff receive appropriate training to support students and identify students at risk of harm and you will also receive safeguarding information and advice on how to report concerns if you are worried about your friends at any point during your studies.

Every member of the college community has responsibility for safeguarding. That includes all staff, Governors, volunteers, students and employers, all doing their part to keep children, young people and vulnerable adults safe.

If you have any concerns about your safety or the safety of others, email us at ccsafe@chesterfield.ac.uk or text us on 07584384838. You can also call in to the hub to report your concerns.
