North East Scotland College is committed to the welfare and safety of all students. We have a legal duty of care to all under 16’s attending College, and have effective Safeguarding procedures in place. Should there be any concern that a young person attending College is subject to any abuse or neglect, this will be immediately referred to the identified member of school staff and the school procedure will be followed. All staff at North East Scotland College are members of the PVG Scheme.
Where a student is under 16 years of age, but no longer enrolled with a school, concerns or disclosures about abuse or neglect will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
Parents and carers should be aware that the College is an adult environment, and supervision differs to what is in place at schools. Young people attending College should therefore be encouraged to take responsibility for their own safety and wellbeing at all times.
Should you have any concerns or queries regarding Exceptional Entry, advice can be obtained from your child’s school guidance teacher, Careers Adviser or from the College’s Student Advice Centre.
Some useful information is also available via the ‘Parents’ section on the My World of Work website.
