A note on Safeguarding
We take the safety of our community and young people very seriously. This programme will ensure safety and safeguarding throughout – via the use of training, DBS checks and a locked secure online platform. Our safeguarding policy is available online and has been central in the planning of 2020 Outbox. We want our young people to be safe at all times, so this programme will be heavily supervised by our team – attendees will always be in a virtual room with our moderators as well as any industry volunteers.
Any attendees aged 16 or under will need the permission of a responsible Parent or Guardian to participate in the programme fully, beyond watching sessions.
We also take inclusion very seriously, so will be providing the necessary materials for any young people who do not have regular access to a device connected to the internet. We want all sorts of young people to be able to build careers in STEM, no matter the resources they have at home.
