Many Higher and Further Education institutions have large student intakes from across the UK and overseas, and for many students this can be their first long stay away from home, which can make them feel vulnerable and unprotected.
NaCTSO has researched and produced guidance which aims to identify simple and effective advice suitable for all institutions. The principles and procedures outlined in this booklet aim to reduce the risk for students, staff and visitors through knowledge and learning.
Each institution will require unique site-specific advice to complement this generic guidance. For further assistance please contact your CTSA or use the non emergency police telephone number 101.
