Wider Learning Topics

As part of our curriculum we are commited to the following:

Putting Health and Safety at the heart of everything we do!   

At Geason, we take Health and Safety seriously. We fully understand and support that health and safety in the workplace are essential, as it is one of the human rights to be safe at work!

Employers can’t put people in danger, so they need to make sure they have effective and current mechanisms in place to ensure the health and safety and safe working practices of each employee.

It is our role as your training provider to ensure that each employer we work with has detailed safety guides and regulations, the mechanisms and systems in place to instruct their employees to minimise the risks and they also make all necessary arrangements for offering their employees effective protection.

In addition to this, all our learners will be supported to develop their understanding and skills concerning personal health and safety, health and safety in the workplace and safe working practices as part of their apprenticeship programme!

Geason has primary responsibility for the care, welfare and safety of the learners in our charge and are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting welfare. All of our learners, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.

Safeguarding involves;

  • What we will do if we think you are being harmed, or likely to be harmed.
  • What you should do if you think someone else is being harmed.
  • What we will do if we think you are about to harm someone else.
  • What we will do to keep you and others safe.
  • The prevention of all types of harm and is about keeping you safe.

To keep you safe, we will ensure that;

  • All staff who have regular contact with learners have been vetted via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
  • All staff are trained on how to deal with learners at risk.
  • We have internal systems for dealing with learners at risk.
  • There is a designated safeguarding lead who can help learners in a variety of situations.
  • You can make use of any forums, including surveys, to report concerns.

Harm means; anything which is happening to you which is physically or emotionally hurtful, examples include bullying, sexual abuse, neglect, physical attack, or being forced to do something against your will. This could be at home, at work, in a training centre, with friends or colleagues.

Prevent Duty

Geason is committed to delivering the requirements of the Prevent Duty. Prevent is one of the elements of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy known as CONTEST.

Prevent is about safeguarding learners from radicalisation and extremism by taking measures to prevent extremism in work-based learning, and by promoting British Values. Prevent is about safeguarding you as a learner to keep you safe and within the law. The Prevent Duty is not about preventing you from having political and religious views and concerns but about supporting you to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways.

What is the Prevent Duty?

Section 21 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on certain bodies, listed in Schedule 3 to the Act, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

What is Extremism?

The government has defined extremism in the Prevent strategy as: “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs”. This also includes calls for the death of members of the British armed forces.

What are British Values?

British values are defined as “democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs”; institutions are expected to encourage learners to respect other people with particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our Position and Commitment

Geason is fully committed to a policy of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. The responsibility and aim of Geason are to ensure that every Apprentice is treated fairly and is encouraged to develop to their full potential in all aspects of their training. Geason in partnership with employers will ensure that Apprentices do not, at any time during training, suffer any discrimination on the grounds of race or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.

Geason will discuss equality issues with Apprentices during progress reviews to monitor their understanding and experience during training.  All Apprentices will be able to access a wide range of support provided by Geason, starting with induction, right through to great exit and progression activities.

Equality – involves creating an environment in which everybody is treated fairly regardless of his or her background. This does not mean treating people the same. First, it consists of valuing people as individuals and ensuring that nobody is discriminated against for any reason.

Diversity – involves recognising that people are different and that these differences are valued. We live in a diverse society which consists of individuals with different backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, values and perceptions. Everybody is different, and we need to understand, value and respect each other’s differences for society to function correctly. Equality and diversity are essential because we live in an increasingly diverse community, and we need to be able to respond appropriately to this diversity. Individuals must be treated according to their different needs to ensure they are treated fairly.

Health and Wellbeing

Staying in good health involves caring for your body and mind.  Feeling physically and mentally fit keeps you feeling good about yourself and gives you the get-up and go to achieve what you want from life.  Staying healthy is vital to all of us here at Geason.

Whatever your situation, sometimes it is difficult to find the time, energy and drive to make just a few changes to improve our lives.  However, putting in the effort can pay off in so many ways.  Learning how to take care of yourself and knowing where you can receive help when needed is the key to remaining fit and healthy.

Here at Geason, we have access to resources that can help you make the changes you need.
