Job Purpose


Passionate in protecting our students and employees


You will play a key role in supporting the Head of Safeguarding in the operational success of the Safeguarding department across its range of activities. BPP takes its duty to safeguard its students seriously. At BPP, we believe that every student has the right to learn in a safe and inclusive environment. Sharing our passion for this, you will manage and respond to Safeguarding and Prevent referrals, applying your previous experience to support students and employees to better understand Safeguarding and Prevent issues and requirements.


What you’ll be doing


  • Managing and responding to Safeguarding & Prevent referrals from the inboxes and helpline
  • Maintaining a caseload and central risk register
  • Identifying the most appropriate Safeguarding support plans for individuals
  • Scheduling regular contact with students and staff to ensure that they are supported
  • Keeping detailed and accurate Safeguarding records
  • Maintaining a comprehensive understanding of Safeguarding policies and procedures
  • Assisting with staff training, student engagement and standardisation in Safeguarding, Prevent and British Values
  • Providing Safeguarding support to BPP staff as required
  • Working closely with the BPP, Welfare, Inclusion and Learning Support teams


Choose a better work-life balance


In addition, you’ll have the flexibility of a home-based role, with the option to work from one of our centres should you wish. Either way, you’ll benefit from a vibrant workplace and a culture that believes in looking after others, while being part of a diverse workforce where difference is celebrated. In addition, you’ll work alongside other like-minded professionals who champion progress, while having opportunities to develop in an environment where creativity and innovation is rewarded. On top of a competitive salary, we provide a generous annual leave entitlement of 28 days, and there’s a rewards package that includes retail discounts, Group Personal Pension Plan, dedicated healthcare and dental plans that offer additional assurance to look after you and your family. Brilliantly, you can also study any of BPP’s courses for free – be it a professional qualification or full degree.
