Safeguarding

We want our apprentices to enjoy a safe, positive working and learning environment throughout their time with us.

As a responsible organisation Liverpool Chamber Training takes a pro-active view in this area. Our fully trained Safeguarding Team are available to offer their advice and guidance to ensure that anyone who is at risk is given the correct support. If you're having trouble at work, at home, during your time training with the chamber, or anywhere else, don't hesitate to get in touch.

If you would like to find out more about our Safeguarding processes, contact one of our recruitment team for more information:

We Promote British Values

LCT fundamentally believes in the promotion of British Values and fully complies with, and champions, the Prevent Duty agenda.

 

Prevent is the government’s strategy to help stop young people becoming radicalised and open to terrorism. It is designed to help all people recognise the signs of radicalisation and to provide guidance about how to support individuals who may be vulnerable.

 

Prevent aims to stop “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.”

 

Prevent is a crucial part of safeguarding young people and we’ve developed an infographic to explain British values and the Prevent duty. You can look at it here.
