Safeguarding Policy

As a provider of higher education, further education and short courses we have a legal duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of students, including those who are young and vulnerable, when studying, working, or engaging in activities or events at AUB.

Our safeguarding policy sets out the University’s commitment to safeguarding and outlines how the University will respond to any safeguarding concerns.

The University’s Prevent policy, which sets out AUB’s responsibilities to protect students from being drawn into terrorism, forms part of our safeguarding policies and guidelines.

The AUB safeguarding policies and guidelines also include guidance on DBS checks, and advice to those undertaking work in schools.
