Everyone should be safe and feel safe. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
We are committed to creating a safe environment for everyone working and studying at City Lit, whether face to face or online.
City Lit operates a Duty Manager system during term times (details are displayed in classrooms). A duty manager can help you deal with safeguarding and health and safety issues, where immediate or urgent support is needed. You can contact them using a telephone number displayed in classrooms from Monday to Friday (until 21:30) and Saturday (until 17:30) to ask for support.
Staying safe online
The internet is great for so many things. However, we also need to know how to keep ourselves safe when we use it.
Our guide will help you to make sure you, your computer and your money stay safe when you go online. You can download the full document at the bottom of this page.
The following video will show you what to do in case of an evacuation of the City Lit building in Keeley Street.
Prevent and British values
City Lit promotes the values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We do this through the way we work, teach and interact with our students and staff.
We promote free speech, encourage development of critical thinking and promote research and debate in the classroom. We are committed to making learning accessible to all, and to empower all students to take responsibility for their own learning.
The government defines these values as “British” because they characterise life in modern Britain.
As an education provider, we are required under the Prevent Duty to report anyone we suspect is being radicalised by extremist organisations.
