Safeguarding and Prevent

We strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for all of the learners at Yeovil College. In fact, over 99% of students feel that Yeovil College is a safe place to learn. It is really important that you are familiar with the safeguarding guidance and behave in accordance to it. Current students will be supported through a programme of safeguarding tutorials.

Every person who comes into Yeovil College is important to us.  We want to ensure your concerns are listened to and that you feel safe, respected and treated well at all times.

If you are worried or unhappy about something that happens during your time at College, or in your personal life, we would like to help you. Yeovil College staff are available to speak to you during normal College opening hours.

You may also find our contacts list useful.

If you need to contact a Safeguarding Officer, call the College Safeguarding mobile on 07973898849.

Find out more about safeguarding via our safeguarding policy that can be found on this page here.

 

TalkCampus:

We have launched a new mental health service called TalkCampus. It’s a free to download app where you can talk with other students from around the world if you’re struggling and worried about your mental health. Your student email address will give you free access, just download TalkCampus from the app stores. TalkCampus is anonymous, it isn’t run by us and we won’t be able to see if you are using it, you also won’t be able to see where other students are from. TalkCampus is based around peer support; you can use it if you need some help yourself or you can go on there and listen and support others.

The platform is safe and moderated and is designed as a place where you can just be yourself and talk about how you’re really feeling. Student life can be tough and we know sometimes you might not want to talk to us about how you’re feeling. TalkCampus isn’t a replacement for counselling or professional support however it is a great place to start talking and to make sure that however you’re feeling right now you’re not alone.
