Edinburgh College has a duty of care to all students, but particularly in regard to young people. All college staff are members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. Appropriate checks are carried out when new staff are recruited. Contractors working within the college must also comply with the college’s safeguarding procedures. The college has two lead Safeguarding Co-ordinators and all staff receive appropriate training to ensure a safe and welcoming learning environment for our students.
