For Senior Managers, Designated Safeguarding Leads, Governors and Advisory Board Members working in Training Providers, FE, Apprenticeship and Skills settings
Ofsted’s transitional inspection arrangements, require providers to evidence how effectively they are meeting requirements to ensure learners are protected from sexual harassment and abuse.
Ofsted expect providers to be responsive to the requirements of “Keeping Children safe in Education” and to the findings in its “Review of sexual abuse in schools and colleges” (June 2021). Ofsted also expects providers to be alert to the potential for sexual harassment to which adult learners may be at risk.
“It could happen here” Ofsted’s June review recommends that leaders act on the assumption that sexual harassment is affecting their learners and take a whole-organisation approach by creating a culture where sexual harassment is not tolerated.
