Staying Safe


All further education providers have a duty to safeguard their students from being drawn into terrorism or extremism. Prevent is about safeguarding students to keep them safe and within the law. The Prevent Duty is not about preventing students from having political and religious views, but about supporting them to use or act on those concerns in non-extremist ways.

Learners can call into Main Reception at Lincoln Gainsborough or Newark, email or phone 01522 876000 ext. 6495/6529 and ask to speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team.
