The welfare of young people and vulnerable adults is of primary concern. SBC Training aims to provide information, advice and guidance and, where required, support to both learners and staff who feel that their safety has been compromised. In the event that an individual becomes vulnerable, they are able to speak to their trainer initially who will enlist the support of the Lead Safeguarding Officer- Rhian Chadwick or Safeguarding Officers Alison Roberts and Nick O'Leary.

Radicalisation & Extremism
SBC Training is committed to providing a secure environment for learners, where everyone feels safe and is kept safe. Preventing extremism and radicalisation is one element within our overall arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of all learners.
There is no place for extremist views of any kind at SBC Training, whether from internal sources- learners or staff, or external sources- community, external agencies or individuals. SBC Training is a safe environment where all learners can explore controversial issues safely and where trainer/assessors encourage and facilitate this.
We recognise that extremism and exposure to extremist materials and influences can lead to poor outcomes for learners and so should be addressed as a safeguarding concern. We also recognise that if we fail to challenge extremist views we are failing to protect our learners.
If you have any concerns contact either of the designated safeguarding managers:
Rhian Chadwick, Alison Roberts and Nick O’Leary or contact your local co-ordinator:

At SBC Training British values are of paramount importance to us. We see British values as underpinning what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain.
The key British values are:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
We aim to:
- Help learners to become valuable and rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background
- Promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different beliefs and faiths to learners
- Ensure all learners understand the importance of respect and are fully prepared for life in modern Britain
- Encourage an understanding of the difficulties other cultures face where such values are not respected
- Embed different materials about democracy and how the law works in programmes in each sector area
- Ensure that all our learners have a voice that is listened to and valued
- Use opportunities such as debates and reviews to promote British values and help learners to argue and defend different points of view
- Encourage individuals to become responsible learners and to actively participate in their own learning and development
