LearnOnline aims to offer self-study courses to anyone who wishes to study independently.
LearnOnline courses offers flexibility, giving a wide range of learners the opportunity to study. This means that some learners will be under 18 or be considered vulnerable adults.
Some of the courses involve contact with administration staff and tutors. In addition to this there may be projects as part of the course, which ask the learners to communicate with the wider community.
LearnOnline welcome all learners, including those considered children, young people and vulnerable adults:
The policy recognises that persons not otherwise considered vulnerable may become temporarily vulnerable in the home or workplace due to domestic violence, stress, illness, bullying or other factors.
It is expected that all learners are supported by an appropriate adult in the home or school setting whilst they work on the self-study LearnOnline courses.
LearnOnline aims to ensure that:
Harm may include:
All LearnOnline staff (administrators and tutors) are employed by Pembrokeshire College and undergo Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Educational Workforce Council (EWC) checks before they are allowed to communicate with learners.
All staff receive annual safeguarding training with Pembrokeshire College and follow the Pembrokeshire College Safeguarding policy.
It is the role of LearnOnline staff to report any suspicious activity or concerns to the appropriate persons.
It is not the role for LearnOnline staff to identify or make judgement as to whether abuse has occurred.
LearnOnline ensures learners are provided with up to date access to understand how to protect themselves or report a situation.
When a member of the LearnOnline team (administrator or tutor) has a concern about a learner’s welfare they must report it to the LearnOnline Delivery Officer.
Once the concern has been expressed, the LearnOnline Delivery Officer will contact the Pembrokeshire College Safeguarding Team who will follow the Pembrokeshire College safeguarding policy.
