ALL OF US at iTEC and VTCT have a responsibility to SAFEGUARD AND PROTECT children, young people and vulnerable adults.


  • ALWAYS put the child, young person or vulnerable adult at the centre of your decision making.
  • DON’T wait to prove or disprove concern.
  • If something feels wrong, it often is. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS.
  • If your concern is about a colleague, SPEAK UP at the first opportunity. Don’t wait for things to improve, as they may get much worse.

If you have any concerns, you can talk to:
