Safeguarding at the university: resources and training


October 18th, 2022

Following the publication of the updated University of Nottingham Safeguarding Policy, we have now developed our university-wide safeguarding procedures, safeguarding leads network and training.

We now have safeguarding leads in place across all Faculties and Professional Service Departments and the details of these are available on the UoN Safeguarding Resources SharePoint site.

These leads support with the management of safeguarding issues across the university, as well as ensuring information and updates are distributed.

We want to ensure that everyone working at the university, particularly those in student facing roles, understand what we mean by safeguarding and know what to do if they have any concerns about a student.

In order to achieve this, we have already provided ‘Safeguarding at UoN’ training to over 800 members of staff. All students facing staff should attend this training and details of future dates are here.
