About the session

Why is the term “safeguarding” causing so much confusion within higher education nowadays?  When should it be used for cases of sexual violence and other types of misconduct?  Are you seeing an increase in safeguarding cases as the number of students with neurodivergent diagnoses rises?  Given the multiple reporting systems that appear to cover safeguarding-related concerns, how can Institutions navigate this increasingly complex landscape?

About the speaker

This session will be led by Susan O'Donnell from Plinth House. Susan O'Donnell, Specialist Consultant and Trainer at Plinth House, will outline a back-to-basics approach to safeguarding and discuss typical cases that pose questions for the sector’s handling and reporting of safeguarding concerns.  Susan has extensive experience in risk management and corporate governance, and has particular expertise in Safeguarding and Prevent arrangements in higher education. More information regarding Susan’s experience is available in the About Us section of the Plinth House website.
