Caring about the health, safety and wellbeing of all our learners.

Safeguarding & Wellbeing

At Petroc, the health, safety and wellbeing of learners are of paramount concern to us. We listen to our learners and take seriously what they tell us.

To promote a safe environment for learners, our staff selection and recruitment procedure includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers’ suitability, including Disclosure and Barring Service checks, as governed by current legislation. All staff are trained in Safeguarding and Prevent.

If any members of the college or local community have concerns about the welfare of a learner at Petroc, please contact the College Safeguarding Team.


The Tutor Support and Wellbeing Team provide a safe and confidential service in which we offer one to one support and guidance to help learners through any barriers they face whilst studying at Petroc. Our team has the relevant skills and experience to support learners with a wide range of issues and equip them with the tools to improve their mental fitness. We have an online Wellbeing Hub with a wide range of information and resources that will empower you to build resilience and support your wellbeing.

If you want to speak to anyone, you can do so via the Wellbeing Hub, or by emailing wellbeing@petroc.ac.uk
