Safeguarding & Every Learner Matters

The Textile Centre of Excellence is committed to safeguarding the welfare of all our learners. The Centre has a Safeguarding Handbook which outlines how we will do our best to make sure that everyone who is part of our learning community is safe whilst learning. All learners are provided with a card giving the names of, and contact details for, our safeguarding co-ordinators for help and support. The Textile Centre is committed to the Government's Every Learner Matters initiative, whereby professional training providers apply policies and improved learning practices to support vulnerable learners.

The Textile Centre of Excellence seeks to promote equality of opportunity for all. We also recognise and celebrate diversity. Our policy outlines how we work towards the provision of a harassment and discrimination free environment and how we will deal with any complaints if they arise.
