Safeguarding & Apprentice Welfare

The Volvo Cars Apprenticeship Programme is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the apprentices enrolled on the programme and expects all staff and volunteers working within the programmes of learning to share this commitment.

This means that we have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place which we operate within. All staff (including temporary, volunteers and senior management) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Apprentices, parents, carers and employers are welcome to read the policy which can be found below with other related policies. On occasions there may be the need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about an apprentices’ welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our apprentices are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

If you feel like someone has acted inappropriately towards you online via any form of social media you should report it. Each of the main social media applications have 'report abuse' buttons which you can use but you can also contact the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (CEOP) using the button below.
