Paragon Skills awarded Gold Standard Leaders in Safeguarding Award

We are delighted to share the fantastic news that Paragon Skills has recently been awarded the highest possible accolade by Leaders in Safeguarding with a Gold Award in Leaders in Safeguarding. This award recognises the exceptional support Paragon Skills has in place to support our learners and colleagues and keep them as safe as possible.

The Leaders in Safeguarding Quality Mark is an award that celebrates and supports achievement in highly effective and robust safeguarding arrangements. It is awarded to organisations in recognition of their provision, practice and commitment to keep children, young people and vulnerable adults safe. The award is valid for two years.

Paragon Skills are the first-ever assessment with no recommendations to go straight to panel and the feedback received has been exceptional.

The recent award report states that Paragon Skills provides an overwhelming impression across the whole organisation, top down that learner and colleague safeguarding and welfare is a high priority and focus. Learners have a very good understanding of safeguarding and how to keep themselves safe. Our learning materials linked to both colleague and learner safeguarding and mental health training have been rated as exceptional and leading the way in the marketplace.

Our partnership with Shout has also been described as leading the way, with initiatives such as our recent winter campaign ‘Take a Moment’ showing our ongoing commitment to sharing support and advice with our colleagues and learners during what can be a difficult time for many.

Andrew Johnson, Head of People & Designated Safeguarding Lead at Paragon Skills said:

This recent audit was a comprehensive assessment of all that we do as a business to ensure our learners, employers, and colleagues are well informed, safe, and supported through robust safeguarding controls and processes. We’ve wrapped a huge cloak of caring and support around the whole organisation and this award is evidence that our learners and colleagues really feel it. We are delighted to have been awarded the first-ever Gold Standard Award of the Leaders in Safeguarding and will continue to make this a priority across our delivery in the future.
