Tresham is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its learners. Each learner’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some learners may be especially vulnerable to abuse or may fall outside the legal definitions, which might include those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, those living in adverse circumstances, learners in care or leaving care, offenders and ex-offenders, and learners who are themselves carers.
