About Us

Safe Guarding

At London Vocational College, we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our learners and staff members. We make every effort to provide an environment in which our learners and staff feel safe, secure, valued and respected, and feel confident to talk if they are worried, believing they will be effectively listened to.

We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that learners and staff receive effective support, protection and justice. Child protection forms part of the college’s safeguarding responsibilities. We expect all staff, governors, and visitors to share this commitment to safeguarding our learners. We follow the Redbridge council Safeguarding procedures and have a number of policies and procedures in place which contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy.  The purpose of this policy is to provide everyone with the framework they need in order to keep safe and secure in our college. The policy also informs learners and staff how we will safeguard them whilst they are in our care.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:

  • Ms Gertrude Logose – Senior DSL and Center manager

Mobile: 07737198947

  • Ms Ambreen Ismail– Deputy DSL and Operations Manager.

Email; [email protected]

Mobile: 07456948093

DO NOT DELAY. If you are unable to contact them, you can ask the college office staff to find them and ask them to speak to you straight away about a confidential and urgent matter.  Please do not conduct your own investigation.

If your concerns relate to a member of staffs suitability to work with learners, please speak to a DSL immediately, in confidence, who will support with the matter or may refer it to (or Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the centre manager) who will investigate and consider what action to take.

Our procedures provide a robust framework which enables staff to take appropriate action when they are concerned that a learner or staff is being harmed or abused or is at risk of harm or abuse. The prime concern at all stages must be the interests and safety.


Prevent is one of the four elements of CONSENT, the government’s counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. The Prevent duty requires all education providers ‘to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’ including safeguarding children, young people and adult learners from extremist ideologies and radicalisation.
