Our Safeguarding team
Go Train’s Safeguarding Team is responsible for the welfare and wellbeing of our learners, every Go Train learner has a Designated Safeguarding Lead attached to their course ensuring appropriate action is taken to support them. The Safeguarding Team is made up from Designated Safeguarding Leads across our centres and online team and is overseen by the Go Train Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Lead.
What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding applies to both children and adults:
- Safeguarding adults means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. Whilst Go Train works to transform the lives of adult learners, we have a duty of care to both children and adults.
- Safeguarding children means protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes. Children includes everyone under the of 18.
Your welfare and well-being are our first priority here at Go Train. Should you have any reason to be concerned about your own welfare, or that of someone near to you, and you would like support, you can contact a safeguarding colleague in confidence using the form below, alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
To support you further with your concern we have also provided additional information and web links below, for various organisations and charities that offer specific support for any individual in need of their services.
Prevent is part 1 of 4 of CONTEST, the UK Government’s counter-terrorism strategy.
Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty of educational bodies, listed in Schedule 3 of the Act, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
What is Extremism?
The UK government defines extremism in the Prevent Duty as: “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values”. This also includes calls for the death of members of the British armed forces. Extremism and radicalisation might include violent Islamist groups, the extreme right wing, and other causes.
What is Radicalisation?
The process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies.
“Radicalisation is a vague and non-specific word which different people may use to mean different things… this nation and our culture are tolerant of religious diversity…” Justice Holman, March 2014
If you are concerned that you or someone near you is being radicalised, you can tell us by emailing email@example.com or filling out the form below. However, we understand this may not suit your situation so you can raise any concerns of radicalisation and extremism directly with the police in your local area.

If you see online content that promotes terrorism or extremism you can report it to the UK Government at www.gov.uk/report-terrorism.
