Harlow College has a statutory duty to ensure that the college adheres fully to its safeguarding responsibilities and promotes the welfare of children/vulnerable adults receiving education and training at the college. This policy applies to all students, apprentices, staff, governors, employers, volunteers and visitors at the college.
Harlow College is proud to deliver excellent teaching and learning to young people and adult learners.
We aim to ensure this excellence is also reflected in our relationship with employers. The aim of this Charter is to outline our commitment to you and clearly outline the standard and level of service you can expect from us and what we expect from you as an employer and employee.
Everyone at Harlow College is entitled to expect a learning experience of the highest quality.
In our College Charter we explain the standards we have set and the targets we seek to achieve. We always welcome the views of our learners, our visitors and the public in helping us to improve our services.
Harlow College is committed to providing high quality support to individuals with learning difficulties or disabilities, or other additional needs (emotional, social or behavioural).
