Never was aware of safeguarding until I graduated from University.

I was just wondering if it is available in universities. I know that workplaces have them and wondered if here as I find Safeguarding a very crucial facility in all establishments.

I'm sure certain departments like student services and wellbeing have to be trained in safeguarding

Hi,

I think it would depend on what department of the university it is, but yes safeguarding is very much in place at university. Some university jobs require safeguarding training, especially working on outreach activities with smaller children.

Yes, it's not just 'some' jobs. We are all expected to abide by certain safeguarding practices.

They are pretty much obliged to. It is about protecting the health, mental health, wellbeing and human rights of vulnerable or at-risk persons with a view to preventing abuse, neglect, and discrimination.

It is of course more pronounced and more stringent with kids, but workplaces must also have these things in place - lots of vulnerable people are in the workforce, indeed people can become vulnerable whilst in work (deterioration of mental or physical health, substance misuse etc)
