Oldham College holds the safety, health, well-being and welfare of students as paramount. We believe that all young people and vulnerable adults have a right to protection from abuse, whatever their age, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual identity or gender. We have a highly-trained team of safeguarding and welfare officers to support students but are also committed to a ‘whole college’ approach to safeguarding.
